AS A CRIMINAL DEFENSE LAWYER, I OFTEN HEAR AN ASTONISHED, “HOW CAN YOU REPRESENT A MAN CHARGED WITH SEXUALLY ASSAULTING A CHILD?!”
This is how.
Life in prison for sexual assault on a child.
“Frontier justice: hang ‘em high!”
Mr. Jones provides an opening.
I look at Mr. Jones, a potential juror, recently retired from the Navy after nearly 25 years, a coach of youngsters in three sports, a family man who plans teaching as a second career. All my training and experience is screaming, DO NOT PICK MR. JONES! as his military career predisposes him toward the government, and his second career shows he is committed to the well-being of children.
