I forgot. Once again my thanks to the future attorneys that found this case. They dug it up, pursued it, and made me look at it. My humble thanks to Laura( my Domme) who runs my life, for pointing out that they had made their case. To all of you....Merci beaucoup!!!!! To Monsieur Beaver...Bon Chance!!
I wasn't going to post this, but secrets asked me to, so here you go. Antonio Beaver was set free last Thursday in St. Louis, Mo. The Judge was incensed at the results of the DNA. The prosecuters office along with the Inncence Project filed a joint motion to dismiss all charges. My co-council, Nina Morrison, along with his public defenders were there when he was released. This happened much faster than I anticipated and I am thrilled. I am new to the appeals process, after 20 years fighting the death penalty at the jury level, and think I am going to enjoy fighting for people who I really believe are innocent...instead of creeps for whom I was fighting against an unjust punishment.
justine and I spent all day Sunday outside looking for them. We scoured the sky, high and low. But, alas, nothing. But I am sure we will find them. Confident am I! You see, Saturday nite, David, my wonderful odd duck 27 year old Son called and told us he was getting married early next summer. I hear San Diego is lovely in June! I do need to learn a little about this Buddhist thing he has picked up. Wedding in the Temple. No steaks at the reception apparently. Something about no meat since he adopted a cow when he was in India recently. Anyhow we couldn't find them. I am SURE they are out there somewhere, because I remember saying "When he gets married, pigs will fly".

The last bits are coming together for a project I have been working on for 6 months. The DNA will be in by the end of the week, we will get a stay on the sentence,and will be in front of the US Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit within 3 months! The case will be remanded back and this poor innocent man will be free before Christmas.....after 11 years behind bars. This one goes to the kids(interns)..they found it...I never would have. Hooray for the innocent...for they are my project. **I love my new job**

Spent a lot of time at the farm this weekend. The horses made it through the winter just fine(I hate horses). justine's vocation allows us some luxeries others cannot. I used to feel guilty about that, until justine gave a LOT of money to the University near here. That gets us our help at the farm. It seems to me very funny that while my name is nationally known, her brilliance affords us this lifestyle. I will continue to grovel with the degenerates of our society, affording them something most think they do not deserve. I think, while some have disgusted me, I like being a hired gun. Have Defense...Will Travel!! Hooray for the innocent...for they are my project.
