75 comments and counting on the last post, but our favorite comment came from a Konty Kort ASA flying under the radar of the Komissar:
I'm a County Court ASA and we're so insulated over here, we know nothing. Who are the good Division Chiefs in felony land? Who are the bad? And who is LORNA?!?!
Rumpole says: welcome young counselor. All your questions will be answered. Just keep reading our blog. Plus, whats the deal with that ASA from Italy in front of Beth Bloom? He's a riot!And this reader responded:
County court ASA are the best. they think their case is the most important one in the world and will not make a decent offer becasue of it. It's all about a learning curve. and usually, they are still learning.
And this reader commented:
If County Court ASA's were made to intern in the felony division before going to County, they would have a better perspective about the system and would see the county cases for what they really are. I've heard felony ASA's say that after going to Circuit they realized how ridiculous they looked prosecuting misdemeanors as if they were capital cases.
GET OUTTA MY SPACE
Things just keep getting weirder, but that’s why we love the REGJB and criminal law in Miami. A Prosecutor/DJ? “My Space” ads jeopardizing a prosecution against Redskins Safety Sean Taylor? A My Space Motion to dismiss???
Its still all Grieco to us. Plus, Mr. Davidoff is taking quite a bashing on the comments section. But as others can testify to, that’s what happens when you are brave enough to post your name. And people wonder why we choose to remain anonymous?
Anyway, our favorite Herald Scribe broke the My Space Motion to Dismiss, which can be found here:

Prosecutor's weekend DJ job new wrinkle in Taylor case
BY SUSANNAH A. NESMITH
Attorneys for Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor plan to ask a judge to dismiss aggravated assault charges against him because the prosecutor in the case has a website that linked to articles about the Taylor case.Attorney Janice Burton Sharpstein claims the website and the link to news articles shows that Assistant State Attorney Mike Grieco is only prosecuting Taylor because he wants to be known as a prosecutor of the stars and in order to further his side career as a weekend disc jockey.''The prosecutor is not interested in just the facts of the case,'' she said. ``He's interested in promoting his fame by prosecuting celebrities. He's using those articles to promote his business as DJ Esquire.'' Grieco deleted the links on his web page on Myspace.com Wednesday morning after learning of Sharpstein's intention to file a motion to have the case dismissed.He declined to comment on Sharpstein's allegations.The State Attorney's Office says Taylor was charged based on reliable information and his prosecution has nothing to do with Grieco's side business or website. The office gave Grieco permission to do side work as a disc jockey.Taylor, a former University of Miami star, was arrested in June after police say he waved a gun at several people he believed were involved in the theft of a friend's all-terrain vehicle. His case was postponed several times so he could play football last season.It is currently scheduled to go to trial on May 8th
A reader quipped:
grieco, you better plea that dog out before you get spanked. as warren sapp once said,"if you cant play with the big dogs you better stay on the porch".
Rumpole says: DJ ESQUIRE???? How long did it take everyone in the SAO to stop laughing about that? If we were in that office, we would be leaving little 45 records in his office. DJ Esquire?? What a riot!!! Does he give closings in rap/rhyme as well?
Rumpole notes that it’s the start of a Holiday Season. Passover those mean comments and show everyone a little peace and love. Have a Good Friday, and Great Easter Sunday. Unfortunately for us, we remain held hostage in this backwater southern town, by this backwater southern Judge, and this backwater southern prosecutor who wants to do all sorts of bad things to our client.
Fear not-Rumpole is on the case! However, because of this stupid circus and the holidays, posts may be a bit slow for a few days. However, those of you ready to file some really mean comments, don’t go there- we still monitor the blog hourly (we have to do something that interests us in court besides listen to a witness) and will remove them at once.
See You In Court. Not the REGJB until Monday.
