Still Here, Head Down, Fingers Flying
Still doing heavy duty, production writing at work. Five co-defendants, convicted of felony assault. One of the five, the most egregious of the bunch, plead guilty. Four were tried in a single jury trial last year and convicted of various things. Three of the four claimed their right to appeal . This month, all three briefs trickled in. And the only thing they all have in common is a complaint about the scoring of one item of the sentencing guidelines. Well, there is some savings of time, over the long haul. I only have to do the statement of facts once, then adjust it based on which brief I'm replying to. But it can get boring in a hurry.
