A few years ago I was in the jury pool for a murder case. I forget if it was the prosecution or the defense that asked me what I thought about the death penalty. My reply almost got me a contempt citation. For the most part I oppose it because I don't think the government should be killing people no matter what they did and the administration of it is a nightmare. The one exception that I favor the death penalty is a case of a elected public official (such as a judge) using his/her office to enrich themselves. That bastard should be strung up in the Public Square after due process of course.
Ciavarella, Conahan withdraw guilty pleas
UPDATE: Conahan/Ciavarella file motions to withdraw guilty pleas
The Judge still doesn't buy it.
I want a trial!
Honest Service Fraud and tax evasion are minimum charges. They can pile on a lot more.
Help me out lawyers. Does the Us Attorney have to go back to the Grand Jury to get more charges?
