Bishop's rare essay is reprinted from the Southern Law Review. A New York trial judge had sentenced Boss Tweed to consecutive terms of imprisonment for guilty verdicts on a number of counts contained in the indictment against him. On appeal, however, the court held that consecutive sentences of imprisonment were impermissible; and that, after serving the sentence for his conviction on the first count, he was entitled to his freedom. Bishop disagrees, and explains why.
