The Crying Game, and Other In-Court Stuff

We prosecutors are serious, professional people. But if it's not going well, should we try something different?!

The other day I was sitting at counsel table reading a file. I looked up to find three defense lawyers waiting to talk to me.
Jesus, Cesar, and Bubba.
One wanted forgiveness and a reduction from a felony to a misdemeanor. One wanted to fight the charges and go to trial. One was just passing through the courtroom and stopped to chat.
And, I suspect, only in Texas.
