I was recently invited by my friend, New York attorney and blogger, Scott Greenfield, to become a contributing blogger to a new project he has begun called Fault Lines. The project incorporates several different attorneys from around the country who write about trending topics and news stories in the Criminal Justice arena. He invited me because I'm semi-literate and can hopefully draw on my experiences from my prosecutor days for a different type of perspective.
Followers of this blog know that I don't normally comment on national news stories here, sticking to what I know best: Harris County Criminal Justice.
However, the opportunity to work with Scott on a project is too good to pass up. He is the preeminent criminal law blogger and I'm honored to be invited.
And I'm not just saying that because he bought me a beer once at Char Bar.
So, here's my first shot at it. I hope you'll contribute to the discussion over there.
