Warning: Statutes May be Interpreted in an Unforseeably Expansive Manner: United States v. Councilman
Imagine the following scenario: you face criminal charges for a crime that you had no reason to believe existed.

The Fourteenth Amendment’s Due Process Clause guarantees United States citizens fair warning that certain conduct will be considered criminal. . . .
