Post-Trial Matters

The defendant pleaded guilty to lesser charges today, and we were dismissed without deliberating. While this saves me daycare issues for tomorrow, I have very mixed feelings about the trial, about the matters that brought the defendant to trial, and about the result. It was very hard, and it was very sad, and I'm very tired. But that's all I have to say about that or rather, all I can say about that.

Hmm. That sounds really hard. Wish it had been clearer for you and everyone. Complexity always makes things hard...especially when broader social dynamics are at play. Thanks for sharing your experience with us...even a little bit of it.
