Hello Miami criminal lawyers. I am Tilly____, a Solicitor in the UK enlisted by your Rumpole to help supervised the blog in his absence. I was instructed not to get involved unless something big happened. I think this qualifies as BIG:
Mr. Markus emailed Rumpole the news that a Federal Judge has ruled that Florida's Drug Laws are unconstitutional because they do not require Mens Rea to commit the crime. I cannot hope to approximate the type of post your Rumpole will do. But here are the particulars.
FLORIDA'S DRUG LAWS (893.13) ARE UNCONSTITUTIONAL!
So says Federal Judge Mary Scriven from your Middle District:
Here is the Amicus brief signed by your famous David O Markus.
Rumpole will be back soon. He is quite liked over here, but of course as his real persona and not his nom de blog.
