I have been researching this, and I think for the first time in US history, a sitting US President has lost as a defendant in a US Supreme Court case. Boumediene v. Bush regarding the crime of false imprisonment, a felony. I wonder if Bush can actually do time or be fined, as are the two remedies for a crime? The closest a President got to being charged and sentenced would have been Nixon. When Bush first started running the country, I scoffed at the ultra-liberals who compared Bush Jr. to Nixon in terms of criminality. I thought they were conspiracy theorists and made liberals like me look bad. I guess I was wrong. I remember a bumper sticker, "From the White House to the Big House."
