I am sorry to hear of this situation. I cannot tell you not to get involved. But I suggest that you are correct, you could make things more difficult for your son, as unfortunate as it is.
I mean, you could go through a lot of expense and time in trying to appeal this and by then his shelve life will be over, and only real thing he would gain is his 41 days of good time - Never gonna get back his 60 days in the hole. It seems to me that if you try to go the appeal route, it could cause him grief inside. Not supposed, to but it could.

Thank you for your input. I have absolutely no respect for the federal system. If the judge didn't think he did it, then why did she give him all this "punishment"? I am just heartsick, and I definitely want to be alive when he is released, but I can tell what it is doing to me. They never think about that. Some are ok, but on the whole I think many of them are petty demi-gods and bullies. I have absolutely no faith in the system.
