No harm, no foul?

“No one was injured, no property was taken and nothing was damaged.”

This was Tracy R. Huff's losing argument to the Michigan Court of Appeals for resentencing after pleading guilty to a charge of solicitation of an assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder.

Lenawee County Circuit Court Judge Timothy P. Pickard exceeded the guidelines range of zero to 11 months and gave Huff 38 to 60 months for trying to hire a thug to beat her ex-husband's wife with a baseball bat.

Huff unwittingly offered the job to a cop.

The case is People v. Huff. (Michigan Court of Appeals) (unpublished per curiam).
