Good front lines blogging from Austin Criminal Defense Lawyer

Read three terrific posts from Jamie Spencer at the Austin Criminal Defense Lawyer describing Travis County's S.H.O.R.T. Court (the local drug court), and busting wide open ill-informed arguments from Crime and Consequences against attorneys advising clients to participate in drug courts. Writes Spencer, "I know this is harsh, but I’ve rarely seen such hogwash from a self proclaimed expert." Then he backs it up. (There's more on the topic from Corrections Sentencing.)

See also Spencer's post on how the Austin Police Department will charge you for a police report but won't really give you one. Good stuff from somebody on the front lines.
