Yeah, Yeah, Yeah...I know that there are several Public Defenders's that have their own blogs (very popular ones I might add...Public Defender Dude, I'M A PD and Blonde Justice come to mind) but how about one from the guys behind the guys in the trenches?
When a PD busts out with a magical witness that blows a case wide open for the defense...who do you think found em? That's right...an investigator. When the PD rips apart a witness for the prosecution that once seemed bulletproof...but it's found that the witness lives his as a professional snitch and they have a background that is so dark and dingy that any sane member of any jury wouldn't believe even the breath that came out of their mouths...who do you think dug the dirt, looking in all the dark corners of their lives? That's right....an investigator. Who do you think gets a pat on the back when a case is dismissed or the 15 years that a client was looking at is turned into 3 months in jail with credit for time served? That's right....not the investigator.
I'm starting this blog because quite honestly, we PD Investigator's deserve to get a little attention and/or recognition once in a while. I think we all have some interesting stories to tell that never make it to the courtroom but need to be heard. I guess I also just need a place to vent....vent the pressures of work and life too I suppose. I am not sure if anyone will be listening, but I'm gonna be talking.
