Stop the Presses!!!

You think news of the long form birth certificate and a certain terrorist's death were big news? I beg to differ!

I bring you news even bigger! After 6 long LONG years, my defendant finally took a plea late Monday. 28 days jail followed by 1 yr of house arrest follow by 4 years probation. Special conditions of it all is that she pay back the damn $$, pay costs of investigation and prosecution, and never apply for or work for an entity that receives grants.


Of course, it was not without its drama and the plea was PAINFULLY slow in coming, but at the end of the day, I gave a little and she gave a little. Neither of us were 100% satisfied with the plea, which usually means its a good one. It also helped that I pulled an old prosecutor's trick and had most of my witnesses, (10 of them) lined up sitting outside ready to testify. The defendant's sister came out a few times to see who was in the hit parade of witnesses, and was reporting back to her.

Hasta la vista, baby!

Been waiting for this report and happy to call you Golden. Glad it is all over. xox

A marvelous plan was made in the stars,
to create a miracle across the ocean so far....
Then entwine and weave all the hopes and labor,
it would take to bring us this joy called "Taylor"....
Now three lives are blessed and somewhere in the stars,
the planners are smiling, as we all are.
