How Sweet

I was assigned to a pretty tough juvenile case recently. It's not that the kid did anything so terrible, but he was kicked out of school, so there was no place to put him but jail. Sigh. Can I say Louisiana needs to work on it's juvenile justice system? Anyway, I worked out something that I knew the assistant DA, the judge, the kid, and the parents would be happy with. Yesterday, we heard the case. Everything went well and everyone left satisfied, including the kid and the victim (which is, of course, important).

The kid's mom just dropped by my office with flowers for me. :) That was so touching!
