The Campaign For DA


Slight Rant

We wrapped up a defense in a criminal case in Jacksboro today that involved a special prosecutor. (The DA's office had to recuse itself since a family member of the defendant had worked in that office). In any event, I feel sorry for Jack County due to the expense that was involved for the prosecution. The case ended up involving a trial which could have been avoided by a reasonable plea bargain offer. The end result would have been the same and thousands of dollars could have been saved. (And I think there is another bill, in addition to the two listed above, that is coming.)
