I missed this update. An appeal due to ineffective counsel is doomed here. Steele was a trained trial lawyer and the government is entitled to presume him to be sane. He failed to fire McAllister and take over the case himself. He therefore went along with all of the incompetence displayed. It will take two years for this to be heard and Steele will rot in prison at least until then. He went insane after aorta surgery and needs medical help, not imprisonment..
