War Story

All attorneys have “war stories” – tales from in the trenches of practicing law.  Occasionally, I like to share them on Crimcourts.

Yesterday one of my clients was sentenced to serve 3 months in jail, which was a pretty good deal for his case.  At booking, they allegedly found cigarettes and pills stuffed in his drawers.  He was charged with introduction of contraband into a detention facility.  At his first appearance hearing on the new arrest, I asked the judge to impose a ‘Stay Away’ order from the location of the offense.

The judge said, “Nice try, Mr. Cordell.”
