Appellant's post-trial documents are replete with errors. In this opinion, we correct these errors. However, in doing so, we wonder why this court should have to step into the shoes of the numerous parties at the trial level whose responsibility it is to ensure these legal documents, documents of consequence, are properly drafted, reviewed, and executed. Surely this court is not the first line of defense. So we must ask, how did this happen?
So begins Sr. J. Aldykiewicz's opinion for the court in United States v. Pennington.
There, however, being no prejudice to appellant, the court affirmed the corrected findings and the sentence.
