Bio for William Otis

On March 25, 2008, the Court heard oral argument in United States v. Ressam. The Court was asked whether 18 U.S.C. 1844(h)(2), which mandates 10 years in prison for carrying an explosive during the commission of a felony, requires the explosives to be carried “in relation to” the underlying felony. William Otis, former chief of the appellate division in the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Virginia discusses the case.
