Just When I Thought I Was Out . . .
So, an update . . . I have a new job! Yay! Much faster than I had imagined, I landed a public defender position in my new state. Because I'm new, and because my clients are juveniles, I'm going to be staying away from current client "war stories," at least for a while. But, I still have a lot to say. For one thing, I have discovered that much of the criminal law and procedure in Texas is way more pro-defendant than it is in Washington. Not at all what I expected. That is definitely something I'll be posting more about. Another big issue is juvenile law in general. This is completely new to me, and it presents a lot of issues worthy of rants, and perhaps a few raves. So, expect some of that. And, of course, there is a ton of injustice related goings on around the country--and the world--to talk about. The Guantanamo tribunals, the insanity defense, and the potential impending death of the exclusionary rule are just a few of the things I'm dying to talk about.
Here we go again.
