I love my job.

If I were ever to publish a "Chronicles of The Public Defender's Office" it would make Chronicles of Stilltown sound like a bunch of short stories for Mormon kids. Alas, some modicum of client confidentiality/tact prevents such things. Every so often though, one of my clients really goes above and beyond and makes the local paper (above the fold bitches! You can't buy publicity like this!). This story is about two topics repulsive to Joe Marietta: 1. criminals who get free tickets out of jail and 2. dudes who steal money from their cancer ridden grandma to get sex changes and ring up huge bills for naughty talk. The public hates both (check out the drop down comments on the article to read the words of some twisted half retarded rat bastards from Madison County) and both are the bread and butter of my trade. The funny thing is, so much craziness happens that, it's not until you see it in a public forum to you get any sense of how it looks to the general public.

Sorry I messed up the link, but in trying to fix it I found another version of the story, this one actually citing yours truly as attorney of records, albeit with incorrect spelling. http://ap.onlineathens.com/pstories/state/ga/20080501/274442160.shtml

The problem with the story is that it doesn't say male to female or female to male. I presume the former, but you never know.

So incredibly awesome. This could turn into Dog Day Afternoon.

If you're going to do Chronicles of the PD's Office, maybe I'll alternate with Chronicles of a Personal Injury Lawyer.

You should turn the trial into a referendum on the grandmother's credibility. And subpoena a lot of dubious characters to testify. There's nothing funnier than a witness saying "fuck" or "suck my dick" in open court.

For the record it was a male to female transformation. And I have had a couple of opportunities to (myself) drop f-bombs in court, the best being "Did you tell the police officer to go fuck herself?"

In an unrelated legal note, a review of the juror questionaires for next week's jury trial reveals that our own McSquared has been summoned for jury duty. His move to Cali cost the defendants of Clarke County the benefit of his solomonesque wisdom.
