For those of you who have an interest in criminal law, and came across me that way, you will already know that the vast majority of crim law blogs are written by defense lawyers, or defense-minded people. Nothing wrong with that, of course, I like being different.
But I wanted to let you know that I'm not alone out there. Here. Wherever I am. As such, I wanted to post briefly today to point you towards two other prosecutors who are blogging, one kind of a big shot author and commentator type (hi Sarena!) and one who has just started. Both are on the East Coast, in New York State, so their take on prosecution may differ a little from the Texas-style issues I come across.
On the other hand, I'm in Austin so maybe we're more alike than different. :)
So, I refer you to Sarena Straus' Blog: Criminal Minded. Justice Unblinded. Check out her recent post on the Straus-Kahn matter.
The second blog is Prosecutor's Discretion and here's what he says:
There are wonderful people in law enforcement doing their absolute best to uphold the laws of this country and I hope to give the public a forum to understand exactly what we do. I'll use my discretion on here to talk about criminal law issues, the court system, police work, amusing court stories, books, and probably a lot of other issues that may relate to criminal prosecution.
So, visit them early and often. You know, right after you come here.
