S. attorney, Bienert has amassed an almost-perfect record, winning all of his 18 appeals before the U. S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, where few federal prosecutors have fared so well. And no defense attorney ever bested him in the 20 criminal trials he personally prosecuted.

The judge, a former UCLA football star, isn't afraid to follow his instincts when deciding a case, attorneys say. "He has a strong sense of right and wrong," said Thomas H. Bienert Jr. of the San Clemente firm Bienert, Miller & Katzman. "Judge Carney has shown a willingness to take a strong position outside the norm when he believes it's the just thing to do."

"They did not steal with a gun or a knife. . . . What they did was worse.
