Are you telling us all this because people (like that lady in the paper a week or two ago) are wondering how you have time to practice law and run your blog and come up with all the stuff from the internet to present to your faithful readers?

Jeez. Are you a DWI lawyer.

I wouldn't have plead the case for the person with the kid in the car. I'd have told him or her to go to court, then "accidentally" made a few mistakes and lost the case.

Hey pleas are good. The defense lawyer looks like he/she got the client a bargain, but in reality if the defendant screws up, then what do ya know, revoke that probation and send their little rear to jail. That's assuming they pled to probation and not jail time. Let's remember, also, how much money (who's money--yes you, the taxpayer) was saved getting a guilty out of these "clients" through a plea offer rather than trying (key word, trying) to convince a jury to convict.
Also, probation is not easy, they can get revoked for the smallest thing and still have to shell out fines, courts costs and fees.

But forget anything the court would have to offer as punishment, look up what happens to the driver's license and what they have to do to keep it.

I fully support the plea bargains. And declare them NOT to be S#$%
