A dose of reality

A lot of times on this blog I talk about preparing and trying cases in the abstract. Thanks to Anne Reed (author of the terrific jury-ology blog, Deliberations), we have a blog that "keeps it real."

Steven Hirsch's blog Courthouse Confessions is at once entertaining and disturbing. Mr. Hirsch interviewed people who were released from custody and his blog documents their comments about what put them behind bars and the effect of incarceration.

It's a good reminder of how individuals are affected by our criminal justice system.
