It's tough being a PD Investigator on molest cases sometimes. Even when you are successful, you can still lose...big time. This story out of New Orleans, LA is a good example of a Public Defender Office under fire with some serious allegations:
Orleans Parish public defenders violated criminal procedure when they repeatedly tried to interview the 12-year-old girl at the center of an aggravated rape and kidnapping case against the wishes of the child's mother, prosecutors alleged Monday.
I'm hoping the PD Investigator and her attorney's come out in the clear on this...make sure to read the comments...remember folks, this is our jury pool!
The comments range from Intelligent:
