Loophole may allow US crime spree

PUBLISHED May 10, 2005

A loophole in US law may allow people to get away with any major crime within a 50-square mile "zone of death" in western Idaho, according to a Michigan law professor.

This lawless oasis is said to exist on the edge of Yellowstone National Park because of a poorly drafted statute in the Sixth Amendment to the US Constitution.
