NV: public defender mugshots

From KVBC in Las Vegas:

Two public defenders arrested

News 3 has learned two public defenders were arrested over the weekend...

Damn shame, but not bad-looking mugshots, considering. I hope they'll be able to keep their careers on track; the female p.d. was admitted in Nevada in 2004, the male p.d. in 2005. At a public hearing in December, he told the state Supreme Court:

"After those cases start piling up, you can't do anything near what you need to do," he said. "I can't convey to you what it means to put blood, sweat, and tears into a job and come home every night knowing you're a failure."

It's enough to drive a p.d. to drink.

I attended the NCDC seminar in Macon with Kathleen this summer & she's a very solid, dedicated attorney - I join you in hoping that she can keep her life and career on track.
