3RD DCA UPDATE

Perhaps it's time we started reading the 3rd DCA decisions again. 

Sex Offender probation upheld in sentence for simple battery. State v. Villanueva. Defendant charged with LL on a child Convicted of lesser misdemeanor simple battery. Judge Murphy gives him a year sex offender therapy as a condition of probation. 3rd DCA holds that while section 948.03 requires sex offender probation for certain offenses, it does not prohibit them for others. 

Go figure. 

PAROLE 
PFC Bradley Manning was sentenced to 35 years Wednesday for the Wikileaks case.  We were some what startled to learn that the US Military has a parole system for inmates who serve a third of their sentence. 
Wow. Imagine a justice and corrections system that evaluates inmates to see if they are rehabilitated during the course of their incarceration and allows them to be released upon due consideration of proof of rehabilitation. What a fascinating concept. 

3RD DCA APPLICANTS
Yesterday we reported on the applicants to two open federal seats in the Southern District of Florida (Motto: "You can be nominated to serve, but that's a whole different kettle of fish than being confirmed.")

What weak candidates for the 3d DCA. No one stands out. I am surprised that jose rodriguez applied. He would have to give up his 11 am to 2pm lunches on the patio of La Loggis and his smoking of fat cigars while watching the hot girls go by. Not bad for a former state farm property subro attorney.Hopefully someone with appellate experience will apply.

Don't forget that Rodriguez really shouldn't through his stupid ball while listening to 3rd DCA oral arguments... he is such a complete d-bag.

Ed Guedes is a brilliant and experienced appellate attorney. Ed Sanchez is a very smart and very attorney as well. Lobree would be a good addition as well.
