BRETT KIMBERLIN’S Criminal History as of 6/30/98 (see KIMBERLIN v. DEWALT 12 F.Supp.2d 487 (1998))
On June 11, 1980 KIMBERLIN was sentenced to four years following his conviction in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas for conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute marijuana.[According to his 1981 presentence report, KIMBERLIN was arrested in 1979 after seizure of a Douglas DC-3 aircraft bearing Columbian registration. Approximately 10,000 pounds of marijuana were found on the ground along the aircraft’s flight path. Drug Enforcement Agency agents concluded that petitioner was the organizer and funding source for the operation, which included the purchase of the aircraft. ]
On November 3, 1980 KIMBERLIN received a consecutive* 12 year sentence following his conviction in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Indiana for possession and illegal use of Department of Defense insignia, illegal use of the Seal of the President of the United States, and impersonation of a federal officer.
On June 4, 1981 Kimberlin received a consecutive five year sentence** following his conviction in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Indiana for receipt of explosives by a convicted felon.[KIMBERLIN possessed two 50-pound boxes of Tovex 200 dynamite while on probation from a 1973 felony conviction for perjury. Part of the dynamite was used to blast holes in the earth to construct an underground storage vault, while some of the dynamite was used in KIMBERLIN’S next offense.]
On December 30, 1981 Kimberlin received a 50-year concurrent sentence*** from the United States District Court for the Southern District of Indiana for possession of an unregistered destructive device, unlawful manufacturing of a destructive device, malicious damage by means of explosives, and malicious damage by means of explosives involving personal injury. As set forth in KIMBERLIN’S presentence report, during a six day period in September, 1978 eight bombs made of Tovex 200 dynamite were detonated in the Speedway, Indiana area. [The bombs were made with electronic blasting caps attached to a six-volt battery detonated by a timer. Some contained lead shot. All but one were placed near homes, buildings, schools and other places open to the public.] One bomb, placed in a gym bag in the Speedway High School parking lot, detonated on September 6, 1978, when it was picked up by Carl and Sandra DeLong after a high school football game. Sandra DeLong received permanent nerve damage caused by bomb fragments in her leg. Her husband Carl lost his right leg and two fingers. [The fingers later were reattached.] Carl DeLong received additional injuries to his inner ear, stomach, chest, neck and arm due to bomb fragments, and endured a series of operations. On February 23, 1983 Carl DeLong committed suicide at the age of 44.
*Consecutive- to be served after the previous sentence. Thus, he would now be serving an additional 12 years after his completed the 4 year sentence.
** 17 years now, yes? Until 1997??
*** My math skills are not too good, my understanding of 1981 Federal Sentencing Guidelines are even shakier; assuming arguendo that the 50 year sentence was concurrent to the 1980 conviction , should he not still be in jail, until 2030??
Dang! I REALLY hate this guy!!
