Unable to charge or unable to convict?[edit]

It seems like the blurb about potentially being unable to "charge" Pelton should probably talk about the probability of convicting Pelton. However, since IANAL, I don't know what the requirements are for filing espionage charges (vs. actually convicting someone of espionage). --Jhfrontz (talk) 01:46, 20 D

give him a break, there are bigger fish to fry. Go after Blago he the did more injustice to this country than anyone. pelton has learned his lesson. give the tax payers a break and let him out. Andrew Diamond

Redundant category[edit]

I don't understand this edit. Why should we have a category saying he was charged if we already have a category saying he was convicted?Anythingyouwant (talk) 20:14, 5 May 2015 (UTC)

@Anythingyouwant: You're entirely correct. I misread the diff of your original edit and thought you were adding the container category, not removing it, and thus I thought my edit was doing what your edit actually did. Mea culpa. —me_and 08:47, 6 May 2015 (UTC)
