  2. That's really something. Wanted and tried to put a post together on it but without something that confirms it, I can't really. Let me know if a blurb comes out in the news about it. It SHOULD be in the news... but often it's not. Sometimes it just quietly happens. Thank you for updating the blog.

  4. Wow, i know fellows who did nothing ! and the girls admitted so, afterwards, only to find the DA pressing charges! and insisting on going to trial or accepting felony /no jail "deal" that looks attractive on jury selection day and the losers come in and you realise, even if innocent, you will do 9 yrs by aserting your rights! It shouldnt be so ridiculously risky to asssert the right to trial, by accepting the deal, a sure thing of no jail time, but a felon forever. Gotta hand it to those brave souls who do go to trial, its like Las Vegas rolling the dice with your future.
