Interesting Exchange

Ken Lammers at CrimLaw Blogged about a trial he lost. The conviction was pretty disgusting: A guy asks whether his case was a felony and whether he can buy a shotgun. The clerk runs a check. The state police computer says OK, he buys the gun, and winds up being declared a felon and getting 5 years after the judge bars any talk of the computer error.

But what's really interesting and what makes this a good read is that the prosecutor is reading the blog! And he responds. Fascinating.
