US SUPREME COURT FINALLY ENDS ALLEN STANFORD'S LEGAL EFFORTS TO EVADE JUSTICE

Robert Allen Stanford
For those who have been following R Allen Stanford's post conviction quest to overturn what is effectively a life sentence, for operating his Antigua-based Stanford International Bank, a massive Ponzi scheme that stole the life savings from many victims in the United States, and elsewhere, be advised that his final legal effort, to have his case heard by the US Supreme Court*,  has ended in failure, as the Court declined to hear his case.

The United States Supreme Court denied his Petition for a Writ of Certiorari on November 28, 2016, but Stanford filed a subsequent Petition for Rehearing on December 23rd. The high court denied Rehearing on January 23, 2017. Stanford's only available legal remedies left, now that he has exhausted all his right of appeal, and right to petition for certiorari, are post-conviction prisoner petitions, which are discretionary with the court, and generally have a very small chance of success.

Stanford, who is 66 years old, is scheduled to be released from Federal Prison, on April 17, 2105, 88 years from now, when he will be 154 years old.
