The Campaign For DA

Justice and Peace

Criminal law defense is what I do for living. It's all I do. That fact has made me emotionally invested in that trial.  Would I have literally thrown up if this man had been convicted? Probably. As I've said before, we don't know exactly what happened during the one minute that preceded Trayvon Martin's death. And if we don't know, that means we have a doubt. And that doubt, being a reasonable one, means that he should not be convicted. It really is that simple.

For the moment, a six woman jury in Florida has restored my faith in The System.
