The news we have all be waiting for arrived. Ask any attorney about the hardships of Covid and they might tell you they miss trying cases; they miss going to court; they miss going to the office. But while those answers may vary, the one hardship we have all endured during Covid, speaking for the defense bar one and all- is the inability to go to the jail and see a client. It's what we live for, The joy of a morning spent at the Dade County Jail or TGK, seeing our favourite corrections officers, breezing in and out of the spacious and well appointed facilities, this has been the hardship we have all endured. Who amongst us doesn't want to spend 3 or 4 hours sitting on those lovely plastic chairs in the TGK lobby, waiting to be called? Who hasn't reveled in the joy of sitting in an interview room at TGK and pressing the button to end the interview eleven-teen-hundred times only to be ignored by a corrections officer eating their afternoon repast? And what better way to spend a comfy South Florida afternoon in the warm and lovely confines of the DCJ?
And now we have the news you have all been waiting for....(drum roll please) THE JAILS ARE OPEN FOR IN PERSON VISITS!
Come one, come all, spend a glorious afternoon (and evening) waiting to see your client and then waiting to get out. We told you if you just hung on long enough that the deprivations of Covid would fade and we would return to our normal lives. And we were right.
The Jails are open! WooHoo!! ODE TO JOY
