It's pretty interesting seeing the criminal law community responding to Blakely, and how a decision in Washington can have such tangible, real-life, immediate effects everywhere in the nation. ProsecutorWife and I spent a good 45 minutes earlier this week talking about some of the cases she has that will have to be quickly reevaluated for plea bargain purposes. At least one civil case on my docket in which our client is facing simultaneous criminal charges has been completely thrown into a state of chaos because of Blakely. This sort of thing reminds me why I love this profession so much. What others are reading about in the newspapers as a passing sidenote, we're living and breathing every day.
