When a Federal Judge admits he “sucks.”

It is not often that a federal judge admits that he or she has made a mistake.  But this one did, very publicly, in a story about sentencing, rehabilitation and redemption.  Shon Hopwood once was sentenced to more than a decade in prison.  Now he’s a law clerk, and a symbol of hope.  Hats off to Judge Kopf, for having the guts to acknowledge that he did not see what others later saw.
