Charges filed against father, son in attempted murder case

Sigmund (Anonymous) says…

Well apparently he didn't tell his client to shut the F' up. The whole “I have no history of a felony. … I think I can disprove this case anyway” is so telling. He might as well have said I pled that previous domestic abuse charge down to a misdemeanor and I think I covered my tracks here so they can't prove a thing.

Seriously this guy is a moron and if his wife is a defense attorney do you think a court appointed defense attorney is going to go to bat (pun intended) for him?
_______

The statements were made at his first appearance, likely before his attorney was appointed and most certainly before the attorney had been given a chance to meet with him and tell him to shut his mouth. In fact, Mr. Robinson probably wasn't even notified of the appointment until later that afternoon or the next morning.

And yes, having met Mr. Robinson before and knowing of his work, I do think he will do his absolute best for Mr. Davis regardless of what the victim does for a living.

“…Court appointment means this moron can't afford a more experienced attorney.”

Don't underestimate the capabilities of appointed attorneys. Because Douglas County doesn't have a public defender's office, these are all just private practice attorneys who have agreed to take on these huge cases for nominal pay despite having plenty of better paying clients to tend to. And Greg Robinson has a lot of felony criminal defense experience, and I suspect he will do good work for this guy.

Four juveniles taken into custody after fleeing police in stolen van

Did_I_Say_That said: Unfortunately, the citizens of Lawrence will never know the outcome of these arrests. First, they are juvenile and, thus confidential. Second, if they are out of county, their sentencing will be deferred to their home county court.

1. Juvenile Offender cases are open to the public. The legislature changed the confidentiality if juvenile cases years ago. I suspect there will probably be a detention hearing/first appearance first thing Monday in Pro Tem if you want to go watch.

2. Only on motion of the state or their counsel. Most of the kids who live at the Shelter are in state custody, some for long term, so they don't really have a "home county" and Douglas is as good as anywhere.

Police arrest man after incident outside Club Axis

People with guns scare me. period. Anyone who goes to a nightclub with a gun in their car is only asking for trouble.

I will also never understand what kind of idiots think it is ok to throw things at police. Um, hello, that is called battery on an LEO and it is a Class A misdemeanor.

Lawyer requests trial in LHS gun case

This isn't really as newsworthy as some may think. Requesting a jury trial at this point is just a formality to preserve the right. I don't know who the attorney is but my guess is this thing will plead out early and the sentence will be supervised probation and maybe a short sanction.

srj: This isn't going to be a diversion eligible offense because it involves a firearm.

21-year-old KU student taken to Kansas City-area hospital after car-pedestrian accident

bearded gnome: there is no crosswalk there, but there is a bus stop right there so there are ALWAYS students crossing that street.

I think a light would be excessive for that little intersection but that area needs to be patrolled better. There are always people speeding down Crestline.

$10 says both the driver and the pedestrian were texting at the time of the accident.

Charges filed against Lawrence High student who admitted taking gun to school

srj said "Any good lawyer would get him no jail time for this, or better yet, throw out the confession."

I'm curious what your legal basis for this statement is srj.

What was that music?

But as the game entered the second half, and more and more music was played, and the band played less and less, Lavieri said he and others in his ticket campout group got annoyed.
- - - - - - - - - - -
(1) We don't camp for tickets, we camp for seats. We already have tickets.

(2) I thought the music on Wednesday was awful. If they are looking for ways to liven up the crowd, that is definetly not it. Bring back the band!!

Lawrence man arrested on suspicion of aggravated incest

Skinny - I think everyone's point is that this guy hasn't been convicted so his name shouldn't be put out there. If you have some reason to believe that the parents of your child's friends are pedophiles, then look up the information. Like you said, it's readily available. But until this guy is convicted, there is no reason to put his name out there for people who assume guilt instead of innocence. The real question is why would you subscribe to the LJWorld when you can just read it for free online?

Do you think Kansas should be a smoke-free state?

Ryan Ludwig doesn't know what he's talking about.
