  • Nothing is going to happen. if the D/A doesn’t think they can prosecute beyond reasonable doubt they are not going to bother with it.all they need is one person to lie ,and say they were with them at the time of the attack .The victim gets sorry about your bad luck .your word against there’s .The prep gots
    more rights than the victum gets To me that is just wrong ,but so true.

  • Between the two mug shots, one almost looks like a normal snapshot, while the other one looks like our typical green mug shot with blasted out highlights, which I always figured was made that way to put the captured parties in the, shall we say, worst light. But the other one almost looks like a normal snapshot. Are they from two different cities? Pretty sure the local mugshots are the always-overly-green-with-blasted-out-highlights ones.

  • 37 and 39, going on 50.
