Arsenal have a quick turnaround between matches this week. The Gunners played the second leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final just three days before kick-off here against Burnley.

Honestly, they couldn’t have chosen a better team to help them erase the painful memory of a semi-final loss. Simply put, the Gunners love playing Burnley.

Although they lost the same game against the Clarets last season, their record against Burnley is incredible.

Last season’s loss was their first in 18 league games against Burnley FC. The Clarets have only won two consecutive away matches against Arsenal in their entire history. Both happened over 60 years ago.

The stage is set for the Gunners to collect three precious Championship points and write their semi-final defeat in the history books.

Arsenal v Burnley For info:

Kick-off time: 17:30 GMT, January 23, 2022

Prediction of the starting XI: go here

Premier League podcast: visit here

Form guide (all competitions): Arsenal (WLLDL) Burnley (LDLLL)

Here’s all the latest news from the North London Red Side team. Thomas Partey and Granit Xhaka will not be available for this clash as they are serving red card suspensions.

Xhaka picked up his red card in the opening minutes of the first leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final.

Partey got his back in the second leg of the same game. Having just returned from a poor performance at the AFCON with Ghana a few hours earlier, Mikel Arteta replaced him in the 74th minute. He took his first booking just ten minutes later and received his marching orders just five minutes later. Comical.

The Gunners have two players still playing in AFCON with Mohamed El Neny representing Egypt and Nicolas Pepe playing for Ivory Coast.

These are only suspensions and absentees from the CAN.

There’s just a dinkum injury crisis that has hit the Emirates Stadium. There are even rumors that this game might not even take place, such is the dire state of Arsenal’s first team outside of their starting XI.

Callum Chambers and Bernd Leno both suffer from different back problems. Neither has a return date listed, so it could be a while before we see either.

Cedric Soares is nursing a hip complaint which also puts him on the injured list for the foreseeable future. This is just the tip of the iceberg for Mikel Arteta’s accusations. Watch this space, this match has a report written all over it.

It’s telling that even in the face of this unprecedented injury crisis, disgraced former captain Pierre Emerick Aubameyang has still not appeared as a substitute.

Although club doctors cleared him of any heart issues and COVID symptoms earlier this week. There is apparently no turning back for the Gabon striker at Arsenal.

If this game continues, I pick the Gunners to win easily, despite their injury crisis.

It was a battle of titans in this one, as two state title contenders looked to end a great day of basketball. Carmel Christian hit the home pitch and hosted JL Chambers and there was certainly no shortage of talent on the pitch. Both teams came looking to make a statement; when it started it was 2023, Jaylen Curry was taking over early, closing in on the line and using his speed to help Chambers take an 18-13 first-quarter lead.

But Carmel Christian came back in the second quarter, hitting some big threes to put them back in the game and take the lead in the second quarter. From then on, both teams made good plays as we were all tied at 33 at halftime.

Carmel Christian came out strong in the second half behind the play of Cade Tyson and 2023 Kaleb Siler, showing a fine inside-out presence that helped give them their first double-digit lead with just under three minutes left in the third. quarter. With Carmel Christian leading going into the fourth, it was Chambers’ defense and guard play that brought them back into the game and eventually regained the lead.

2023 Nick Dorn and company hit some big deep shots to give themselves the last lead. Chambers eventually went up five with 20 seconds left and a late turnover finally sealed the win for them on the road. In the end, JL Chambers won 67-60.

Statistics:
JL: Jaylen Curry 22pts, 5asts / Nick Dorn 12pts / Kendall Smith 9pts, 6asts, 5stls
CCS: Cade Tyson 17pts, 6rebs, 7asts / Kaleb Siler 10pts, 5rebs / Logan Threatt 11pts

Eye-catchers from POB:
Bedrooms :
2023 Jaylen Curry: There wasn’t a player who could stay ahead of Curry, as he was weaving through defense, getting down and to the rim, or reaching the line consistently. With his speed, Curry is such a tough match for any defender and his ability to be a playmaker is why so many HM schools come up to him.

2022 Kendall Smith: Gotta give it to the senior…Smith stepped up, played hard on defense and really had his impact in the second half. He made big plays, scored big baskets and finished well. Really made big baskets in critical moments for his team.

2023 Nick Dorn: Much like Smith, Dorn stepped up when it counted. He knocked down a three in the first half but came to life and delivered several big shots for his team, not least showing his confidence behind the arc.

Carmel Christian:
2022 Cade Tyson: There’s a reason he’s looking to be one of the POY candidates in North Carolina. It took a quarter but Tyson started to come in and let the game come to him. He moves so well off the ball and has a knack for finding open runs and at 6’8, rising just above the defenders. He’s not afraid of the big shot and when he starts playing it seems like the whole team is starting to experience success. And let’s not mention some impressive blocks also in transition.

Kaleb Siler 2023: Siler really started to make his presence known in the second half, capping defenders well, using his body and frame to his advantage and earning formidable position in the paint. This allowed him to show his touch and score easy baskets down low, making a nice upside down presence for this team.

Legislation gives school districts flexibility on everything from hiring substitutes to distance learning

FRANKFORT, Ky. (WTVQ) – As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, the Kentucky General Assembly’s commitment to meeting the pandemic-related needs of the Commonwealth also continues.

On Thursday, the Legislature gave final approval to Senate Bill 25, which seeks to extend a number of COVID-19 executive orders and provide schools with additional flexibility for remote learning.

Upon the governor’s signature, the bill will grant public school districts up to 10 days of distance learning per school for the remainder of the 2021-22 school year.

This will allow superintendents to move specific classrooms, grades or schools experiencing an increase in COVID-19 cases to temporary distance learning instead of having to close entire schools or school districts at once.

As more school districts face staffing shortages, another provision in SB 25 would allow more retired teachers to return to the classroom.

SB 25 also aims to expand COVID-19 emergency prescription protections from price gouging, expand access to nutritional assistance, give retired first responders the ability to return to work, and allow state and local governments to conduct business and meetings virtually. It would also extend the emergency order allowing pharmacies to fill prescriptions for up to 30 days.

Under this bill, those orders would now expire on April 14.

The House approved SB 25 by an 84-9 vote on Thursday after amending the bill to include the emergency extensions. The Senate then approved the changes with a vote of 17 to 8. Now the measure will be sent to the governor’s office for his signature or veto.

Rep. Scott Lewis, R-Hartford, and Rep. Bart Rowland, R-Tompkinsville, introduced the bill to the House ahead of the vote.

Rowland said SB 25 is similar to emergency measures lawmakers passed in the 2021 special session, some of which are due to expire on Saturday. SB 25 will continue the COVID-19 state of emergency to the extent necessary to secure federal funding and reimbursements, he said.

Explaining the education portion of the bill, Lewis said that while SB 25 is similar to a bill from the 2021 special session, the guidelines for remote learning have been changed to help avoid shutdowns. on a large scale of schools or entire districts.

Joni L. Jenkins, D-Shively, House Minority Floor Leader, voted “yes” on SB 25, but said she felt the process was rushed.

“I think among the body there’s probably a lot of concern that things aren’t covered by this bill,” she said.

While reviewing the changes made to SB 25 by the House, a few members of the Senate also expressed frustration with the process and disagreed with the changes made to the bill.

Sen. Max Wise, R-Campbellsville, is the main sponsor of SB 25. However, he voted against the final bill after it was amended in the House. So does Senator Wil Schroder, R-Wilder.

“I have issues just with the process,” Schroder said. “You know, Senate Bill 25 left the Senate chamber as a 4-page education bill, and I agree it had COVID measures in it. But it came back in the form of a substitute House committee in the form of a 12-page bill containing all those emergency orders.

On the floor of the House, Rep. James Nemes, R-Louisville, spoke in favor of the education portion of the bill.

“I will say it’s good,” Nemes said. “One of the reasons I’m happy is that it will allow children in the Commonwealth to go back to school more often.”

SB 25 contains an emergency clause, which will allow it to become law immediately after the Governor’s signature.

BOZEMAN – Sean Chambers suffered three late-season injuries and retains two years of eligibility, all without wearing a medical red shirt.

The quarterback played a full 2021 season in Wyoming and led the Cowboys to a 6-2 record in 2019, a season cut short by a knee injury. Chambers, who initially pledged to Rutgers, wore his usual red shirt for four games in 2018 after breaking his right fibula in Game 4.

Chambers broke his left fibula in the third game of the postponed Wyoming 2020 pandemic opening scrimmage. The 6-foot-3, 225-pound double-threat QB did not need a medical red shirt because the NCAA had granted athletes an additional season of eligibility that year due to COVID-19.

On Sunday, Chambers announced his commitment to Montana State, a team he helped beat in the 2021 opener with a last-minute touchdown. He played an injury-free season but struggled at Mountain West and lost his starting position after seven games. Chambers entered the transfer portal last month.

Chambers spoke to 406mtsports.com by phone Tuesday from his hometown of Kerman, Calif. He discussed his injuries, the Bobcats, divisional finalists in the soccer championship, and his role for Brent Vigen, MSU head coach and Wyoming offensive coordinator from 2014-2020.

NOTE: This Q&A has been edited for brevity and clarity.






Wyoming quarterback Sean Chambers faces Montana State on September 4, 2021 at War Memorial Stadium in Laramie, Wyo.




406: First of all, what were the main reasons you chose MSU?

SC: Montana State has a good program, and I think they’ve taken a really, really big step forward this year to qualify for the national championship. I played well on both sides of the ball, I had a very good run. When we played at Montana State, Wyoming, they laid that out in front of us. They gave us a few fits in defense, and their offense brought him to our defense.

With my relationship with Coach Vigs, it felt like this was the right place for me.

406: How would you describe your relationship with Vigen?

SC: We have a very good relationship. He recruited me out of high school in Wyoming, and I just think we’ve developed that relationship over the years and made it a great one.

406: How would you describe him as a person and as a coach?

SC: He’s a player coach. I think people want to play for him. I know in Wyoming people wanted to play for him and wanted to do well for him. People really love him, and they love what he brings to the table.

406: Did he contact you first to come here, or was it more from you?

SC: It was a bit mutual. He saw me walk into the transfer portal, and then we kind of reached out and talked. Next thing you know, I’m going to Montana State.






UW vs. MSU

Wyoming quarterback Sean Chambers throws the pitch during the Cowboys’ game against Montana State on September 4, 2021 at War Memorial Stadium in Laramie, Wyo.




406: In your opinion, what are your main goals when you arrive at MSU?

SC: I just want, first of all, to get to know my teammates and develop relationships with these guys and get into the program and shape myself to be a Bobcat.

406: Is being a starter your main goal right now, or is there something else?

SC: The main objective is to go out there, compete and help them in any way possible. That’s kind of the reason why I thought Montana State was a good fit for me because I see myself as a competitor and a team guy, and I would love to go out there and really help the team. in every way possible. That’s kind of how I see myself going in there.

So I wouldn’t say I’m going to expect to be the starter right away because it’s just not reasonable. I know they have good quarterbacks and the quarterback room is pretty tight, and I just want to go out there and contribute in any way I can.

406: What do you think of Tommy Mellott?

SC: I think he’s a stallion. He lit up the playoffs a bit. He can run the ball, he can throw the ball. I think he’s a stallion. I think he’s a very good football player. I know when I was young I was kind of like that, so I feel like I can be a help and be a help.

406: You’ll easily be the most veteran quarterback in this room unless he gets another transfer, so I imagine that’s what Vigen and the other coaches expected from you, that veteran presence ?

SC: Yes, definitely. I’ve played soccer games, been through the ups and downs of college football and sort of know what to expect so I guess I can provide some veteran help with this. room.

406: Vigen and (offensive coordinator Taylor) Housewright discussed how the quarterback’s run is such an important part of their offense, so I imagine you and Vigen both saw this as a good choice, being a dual threat mobile quarterback?

SC: Yes, definitely. I love what Coach Housewright does with the offense. Like I said, they came to Laramie this fall, it was kind of on display for me, just watching them play and stuff like that, so I love what they do. Watching the playoffs and watching these guys do a race, it was really obvious what they wanted to do, and I think I can help with that.

406: I can guess the reasons you entered the portal, but can you say in your own words why you chose to leave Wyoming?

SC: I spent four seasons in Wyoming. Things were going well and things were bad. I had three injuries that ended the season there, and I just felt like I needed a new home, a new environment, a fresh start to end my career. university.

406: The loss of your starting job, I imagine, probably played a role?

SC: He had a certain role, but not entirely.

406: Were any of these three injuries worse than the others?

SC: I would say the last one was the hardest to get through. Physically, I think they’re all pretty much the same. You hurt him, it was painful and you need to go to rehab. It sucks. But I would say the last one, mentally, was the hardest. Coming out of the canceled season, then coming back into our season, then breaking my ankle, it broke my will a little bit and kind of kicked me back down.

406: I saw this picture of you on the cart in tears. It breaks my heart watching him. Can you explain to me what exactly went through your mind at that time?

SC: I’m just asking, “Why? ” I suppose. I’m just asking, “Why does this keep happening?” What is going on? What can I do to make it stop? “






Sean Chambers carried away

Wyoming quarterback Sean Chambers reacts as he is hauled off the field after sustaining a leg injury early in the Cowboys’ 2020 game against Nevada at Mackay Stadium in Reno, Nevada.




406: I can’t imagine the feeling of going through all of this, of breaking both fibulae. Have you felt a snake bite?

SC: Yeah, definitely Snakebit. I returned to campus on January 4, 2020. I came back to campus early, in rehab, because I knew I wanted to play. I knew I wanted to get healthy. Then for the same thing to happen again, this same process, it really hurts. It really broke my will.

406: I’ve seen the stories of how you thought about giving up football. Just to hear it in your own words again, what made you stick with the sport after going through all of this?

SC: Being around a team, being with teammates, that helped a lot. I knew I loved football, and I knew I was not done with football. I knew I had more to give, and that’s kind of what got me through it. I made a commitment to play my football years and wanted to end that commitment, anywhere.

406: What did Vigen tell you during those moments of doubt?

SC: He just told me to keep going, put my head down and keep working. He always encouraged me to stay strong and stay tough and stay me.

406: Was this post similar after the first two injuries?

SC: Yes, it certainly was. I would say he and his wife Mrs (Molly) Vigen were a big help with these injuries, whether it was picking me up after surgeries or dropping me off for surgeries or just watching me . They have been fantastic and such a great help.






Wyoming vs. MSU

Wyoming quarterback Sean Chambers faces Montana State on September 4, 2021 at War Memorial Stadium in Laramie, Wyo.




406: Losing the starting position and I’m sure not playing up to your standards (in 2021) was tough, but not hurting yourself, was that bittersweet? Was that just disappointing or was there some hope, like “Hey, I can go through an injury-free season”?

SC: It was bittersweet for sure. I would have loved to play on the pitch without suffering a late season injury, but at this point in my career it’s a win for me. I love that I was able to get away from the season and still be on my feet. So that makes me more happy than anything.

406: How much do you think these injuries affected your game, if at all?

SC: I don’t think it affects him. Once you have a lot of injuries like that you just have to stay on it more often, you have to stay in the training room more often.

406: What do you think of your game? How do you feel about your abilities when you first arrived in Wyoming?

SC: My game is a little different. I think that’s a little wiser of me. I know I’m not an 18 year old kid running around and can take all those punches. I know I’m not that kind of kid and I can’t be that kind of kid. So I think I had to evolve my game a bit and become a better passer and become a smarter runner, a more efficient runner.

The All American Bowl took place on Saturday and TCU was well represented by signer Kyron Chambers.

The South Oak Cliff defensive back had a big impact on the win, playing excellent defense against a multitude of talented receivers and achieving that interception – and nearly pick six – that rocked Twitter.

Chambers reportedly scored but fumbled – although he got the ball back.

He also had a nice SEB on a third down pitch:

Chambers also had an impressive week of training, getting noticed by recruiting scouts, teammates and opponents. Playing against some of the best high school QBs in the country, he more than held up:

Chambers, a three-star prospect, has just won a state championship at SOC. The Dallas native picked TCU out of 21 offers, moving to the Arizona Frogs after initially signing up to the Wildcats in June. The All-State selection was a huge addition to the Class of 2022 and could see the field early for the Horned Frogs. At 6 ‘and almost 200 pounds already, the cornerback certainly has the size to do it.

Three TCU high school signers have competed in All American Bowls this season, while future Frogs Chace Biddle and Jordan Hudson both appeared in the Under Armor game earlier this month.

Chambers High School, plain and simple, was tired of losing to North Mecklenburg.

So even after trailing 10 points in the first quarter, the Cougars were determined to end a nearly nine-year losing streak against their conference rivals.

Led by South Carolina rookie Daniel Sanford, the Cougars rallied to win 84-74 in overtime.

“I knew that coming into this game it would be an air fight,” said Sanford. “I had to be the only one to step up for my team. “

Vikings goaltender Jordan Crawford finished the game with 25 points, and Sanford knew that heading into this game his team was going to have to keep Crawford tight the entire game.

“They are a good transition team on the fastbreak,” Sanford said. “They do it by finding Jordan (Crawford) so we knew we had to contain Jordan and not let him get the ball back once we got it out of his hands.”

This game may have been a preview of the NC 4A State Playoffs as both teams are well trained and have a lot of talent in both teams.

Northern Mecklenburg is No. 3 in the Observer’s Sweet 16 survey, one place ahead of Chambers.

And the victory meant a lot to the underdogs.

“I don’t even have the words to describe it,” Cougar head coach Brian Frasier said. “Both teams played hard, the game ended in overtime and we just got the win.”

THREE WHO MADE THE DIFFERENCE

Daniel Sanford, Rooms: 36 points alone are enough to make the list, but Sanford has done more than just score basketball. His defense was the catalyst for Chambers’ return from a double-digit decline. He totaled four blocks in the game and forced a lot of stray passes by clogging the paint and not allowing anything easy at the bottom.

Jordan Crawford, Mecklenburg-North: Crawford, a College of Charleston rookie, finished with 25 points in an effective night at distance. His defense against Jaylen Curry was key for the Vikings to keep the game tight until the end.

Maurio Hanson, Rooms: While his score may not have been on par with his first zone teammate, Hanson contributed better to the glass than anyone on the floor by snatching rebounds and battling for second possession.

TO NOTE

▪ Although he didn’t have the best scoring performance, Jaylen Curry had eight assists in the game, two in overtime to help wrap his team’s victory.

AND AFTER?

Chambers improves to 10-5 this year and 4-0 in conference as North Mecklenburg suffers only his second loss of the season, but falls to 3-1 in conference. Chambers will take on West Charlotte on January 11 while North Mecklenburg will take on Hopewell also on January 11 at 7:30 p.m.

Girls game summary

The Chambers varsity girls team managed to take out northern Mecklenburg 60-55 behind second-year guard Mila Holloway’s 22 point exit. She put her team on their backs when North Mecklenburg raced to take the lead after the first quarter.

The Cougars regained the lead in the second quarter and didn’t look back, although the Vikings would never leave, Chambers managed to keep them from regaining the lead.

“We had to make sure we played our game,” Holloway said. “Sometimes we had to slow down, but just make sure you listen to what the coach said.”

Misaka, who is Japanese-American, was the first non-white athlete to play in the basketball in what would later become the NBA. Ogden City named the new resurfaced field “Kilowatt Court” in honor of Misaka’s nickname. About a hundred people came to honor Misaka at the official inauguration of the court.

The University of Utah men’s basketball program is set to induct two Ogden natives into its circle of honor with “jersey of honor” ceremonies in the coming month.

The Utes will honor the late Wataru Misaka in two weeks and Tom Chambers in early February, the school said.

Utah initially announced that he would honor Misaka in February 2020 after her death at the age of 95 on November 21, 2019. This ceremony was delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic, but will now take place on January 22 when the Utes are expected to host USC.

Misaka graduated from Ogden High in 1941. He helped Weber State Junior College win consecutive junior national championships in 1942-43 and was named MVP of the JUCO National Tournament in 1942.

Misaka went to the University of Utah and played point guard for the 1944 NCAA Tournament Utah Championship team and the 1947 NIT Championship team. Between his two seasons playing for Utah, Misaka was drafted into the United States Army and rose to the rank of Master Sgt.

He was then drafted by the New York Knicks and is considered the first non-Caucasian player in American professional basketball.

Chambers was born in Ogden in 1959 and lived in the area for some time before graduating from high school in Colorado. He returned to Utah to play for the Utes from 1977 to 1981. He was a two-time All-WAC center and led Utah to a WAC title and a Sweet 16 appearance in 1981.

The San Diego Clippers drafted Chambers eighth in 1981, beginning his 16-year professional career in which Chambers played for the Clippers, Sonics, Suns and Jazz. He was four times NBA All-Star and two-time All-NBA. He is currently a studio analyst for Phoenix Suns TV shows.

The Chambers ceremony is scheduled for February 5, when Utah hosts Oregon.

Misaka and Chambers will be the eighth and ninth Utah male players to have their jerseys hung from the rafters at the Huntsman Center.

OPINION:

Last month, Rogel Lazaro Aguilera-Mederos, a 23-year-old truck driver, was sentenced to 110 years in prison for unintentionally causing a shipwreck that left four people dead and injured others. Aguilera-Mederos, who did not use a ramp after his brakes failed as he accelerated on I-70 in Colorado, was found guilty of homicide and less serious charges of first degree assault and attempted first degree assault for the four Coloradans who died.

Aguilera-Mederos, in tears and apologizing, who was not drunk at the time of the accident, told the court: “It hurts. Too often I ask God why them and not me? Why did I survive this accident? “


Mr Aguilera’s case drew more than five million signatures on a Change.org petition, calling on Governor Jared Polis to grant leniency or commute his sentence. Last week, the governor of Colorado responded to the public outcry, reasonably reducing Mr. Aguilera’s sentence to 10 years.

Had Mr. Aguilera been found guilty only of homicide and driving charges, he would potentially have only been sentenced to a recommended sentence of two to six years. But because the assault and attempted assault in the first degree are considered “crimes of violence” and stem from the same incident as the charge of manslaughter, the state imposed a “mandatory minimum sentence”. “. In the case of Aguilera-Mederos, the law required that his sentences be consecutive and not concurrent.

As a former prosecutor, I saw the unintended consequences of mandatory minimum sentences and how they create a coercive justice system. Prosecutors who believe there are extenuating circumstances in their case must use one of three options to protect defendants from an unfair mandatory sentence: they can refuse to file, demote a charge, or offer the defendant a plea bargain. for a lesser charge without a mandatory minimum sentence. The latter option is the most common and often requires an accused who wants to assert his innocence at trial to plead guilty to a less serious charge just to avoid a harsh mandatory sentence.

The latter option may seem inconsequential since it appears that the defendant would benefit from being charged with a less serious crime. But the effect of this generalized solution violates the presumption of innocence of the Constitution implicit in the Fifth, Sixth and 14th Amendments because it forces Americans who believe themselves to be innocent to waive their right to a trial since they know if they are convicted, even their judge can do so. nothing to protect them from a draconian and mandatory sentence.

However, the state recently amended its mandatory minimum law, and it now offers a safe harbor provision for judicial “review”. This allows the sentencing judge to reconsider the original sentence once the defendant has started serving his sentence, provided the case is “exceptional” and “involves[s] unusual and extenuating circumstances.

Under this provision, even if Mr. Polis had not commuted Aguilera-Mederos’ sentence, the sentencing judge could have reconsidered his sentence. Although this type of provision is unusual, some jurisdictions are considering a similar reform. In California, a newly formed state commission is considering eliminating mandatory sentences for non-violent crimes and allowing judges to reconsider all sentences after a person has spent 15 years in prison.

“The federal system allowed judges to reconsider a sentence for a period of time after passing it, but that has since been abolished,” lawyer Alan Dershowitz told me in a telephone interview. “Judges can only reconsider a sentence now if the government asks for it. The vast majority of criminal cases are not covered by these types of “review provisions”, so there is a need for a change. ”

Mr. Dershowitz’s assessment of a need for change could not be more specific, as mandatory minimum sentences have done more than undermine the constitutional rights of defendants in the face of loss of their liberty. They have also undermined the independence of the judiciary, subjecting judges who hear the unique facts of cases to the will of lawmakers who do not, turning courtrooms into mere star chambers issuing rubber convictions. for elected officials reacting to the general outcry.

Our editor’s intention to keep the legislature out of the judiciary is inherent in Article I, Section, Paragraph 3 of the Constitution, which prohibits Congress from passing “bills” that punish people for crimes. and “ex post facto laws” that retroactively enforce punishment.

In 1965, the Supreme Court ruled in US v. Brown that “the Bill of Attainder clause was not intended as a narrow, technical (and soon to be outdated) prohibition, but rather as an implementation of the separation of powers, a general rule safeguard against the legislative exercise of the judicial function or more simply – judgment by the legislator.

In his 2002 book, “The Supreme Court,” former Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist affirmed this position, writing that “he [is] the traditional role of a court, adjudicating an individual case, to impose a sanction.

While elected lawmakers rightly hold the constitutional power to make laws, that power, like any power in our republic, is limited and should not interfere with appropriate judicial discretion to preserve the rights of the accused.
