I am informally informed that CAAF granted review today on these pretrial punishment issues:

I. Whether, having found knowing violation of AFI 31-205, the military judge erred in not determining that the violation involved an abuse of discretion warranting credit under RCM 305(k)

II. Whether the conditions of Appellant’s pretrial confinement in suicide watch which included, inter alia, denial of books, a radio, and/or a CD player, and 24-hour-a-day lighting, were so excessive that they constitute punishment in violation of Art 13, and thus Appellant is entitled to additional sentence credit.

I understand that the case name is United States v. Williams. My best guess is that it’s case number 08-0339/AF.
