BREAKING: The 39th President of the United States, James Earl Carter, was hospitalized today on a flight to Cleveland. No further details at this time, however, Cleveland is known to have that effect on people, right Lebron?
UPDATE: BAD TIME TO BE A FED. Karama continues to strike at the DOJ, as we are just learning that Nicholas Marsh, a federal prosecutor currently under investigation for his role in the discovery shenanigans in the Senator Ted Stevens prosecution, has committed suicide over the weekend. The breaking story is here.
<--------TAKE OUR CRONIN POLL
AUSA Sean Cronin's booking photo.
Miami Federal Prosecutor Sean Cronin, who of late was most notorious for taping our fellow blogger David O Markus, in the case in which he lost and then got referred to the Bar by Judge Gold, has been arrested for Lewd and Lascivious Assault on a Child and Resisting Arrest without Violence to an office.
The title of the post links to the arrest.
Now to be fair, the facts appear to be a bit ridiculous. Mr. Cronin, while at a bar, decided to go for a dip in the pool in his boxer shorts. A mother who had a young child with her complained after they stated they could see Mr. Cronin's genitals.
So this is basically as BS a case as the tight ass feds usually bring.
One can only hope that when Mr. Cronin gets counsel, the ASA assigned to the case threatens a "seismic change" in the prosecution if Mr. Cronin contests the charges. You will remember that Mr Cronin did the same thing to Mr. Markus after David filed a motion to suppress, and obtained a superseding indictment adding about a hundred more counts.
No word on whether Mr. Cronin was booked in his skivvies or was allowed to put on his pants before being taken off to jail.
Just what kind of briefs do those AUSA's carry anyway?
Check out the post below. David hung Buju's jury in Tampa. Nice work.
