Having read the article, the following can be stated:
This is the best case for why laws need to be reviewed, looked at, either gotten rid of, or updated, if there is any case of such, it is this. As it
can be seen, the judge has to follow the laws that are on the books, they are not allowed to change the definition of what is or is not within the
law, it is not within their perview. That includes the sentencing that they impose, they can only follow the laws as they are written.
If anything this should stand that maybe instead of trying to change one law at a time, perhaps it would be best suited to go through them all and
decide what is and is not relavent or should be updated, and get politicians into the habit and ease of removing laws off of the books.
