A Long, Long Year
- Two Murders
- An Aggravated Sexual Battery
- An Aggravated Sodomy
- A Rape/Aggravated Assault
- An Armed Robbery
- A Burglary
- and ... something else.
I tried and retried a murder with my boss as second chair. I've closed somewhere near 325 cases. I have been tired most of the year and feeling worn very thin.
Last week, I learned that the County CEO is asking us to eliminate 13 positions, in a 50 lawyer office.
Nonetheless, I'm feeling a little upbeat. I'm moving to a new courtroom after the first of the year and it sounds like it will suit my workstyle a little more. I'll be partnered with a great lawyer, from whom I know that I can learn a lot, and I'll be working with at least one prosecutor that I already know, from previous courtroom assignments. All in all, the change is going to be good.
Assuming that I am still employed.
