Well, today we were in court in the same situation and this time the judge phrased it this way:
Mr. Smith, Mr. Lammers may have some rights here, but that's not what we're here to talk about. We're here to talk about your rights.Okay, which one of ya'll out there put the judge wise to my blog post? I doubt he read it himself.
I told the local prosecutor that it was nice to have some of my rights returned to me and his comment was "Or maybe the judge is just putting you into the same category in which he places your clients and thinks you'll need those rights."
