Everybody's making a . . . Suppression motion
Last month, I wrote a motion in opposition of suppression of evidence. In my last day at the Douglas County DA's Office, I had the privilege of representing the state in the hearing. It was a nightmare morning--my witness overslept, the hearing started late, but I found out today that the state prevailed, so the evidence is not kept out of the trial. It might not seem like much to a lot of folks, but it was my chance to sink or swim. I think I at least dog-paddled to the ladder in the deep end after doing a cannonball off the low diving board. It wasn't necessarily pretty, but I didn't drown either.
