From Lauren Regan, Civil Liberties Defense Center, Published March 22, 2018:

On Monday night I laid awake all night long in an uncomfortable hotel bed waiting for my alarm to go off at 6am.  I was obsessively ruminating on the sentencing presentation I would give to the Chouteau County District Court in Fort Benton, MT on Tuesday morning on behalf of Valve Turner Leonard Higgins.  All night long I went over the law, my evidence, what I would say to the judge.  I saw Leonard’s partner’s face in my ‘dreams’ asking me to protect Leonard and keep him from jail. I saw his daughter and his grandchildren asking me why he would be sent to prison for trying to save their future.
