Filed under: — Patterico @ 6:59 pm

The author is a Deputy District Attorney. He does not speak for his office on this blog, but rather in his private capacity under the First Amendment. He expresses no opinion about the sentence Roman Polanski should receive, and will leave that argument to be made by the appropriate people in his office.
