The rumble in Rhode Island is over – Rhode Island won.
As frequent readers of this blog – and fans of the Interstate Agreement on Detainers – will recall, a fight broke out between Rhode Island and the United States Department of Justice over a man named Jason Wayne Pleau.
Mr. Pleau appears to have killed a man in the course of a bank robbery. The bank was federally insured (like just about every other bank in the country). The United States Attorney’s Office in Rhode Island decided to bring a case against Mr. Pleau based on the charges.
