Editor’s Note – We’ve never had a guest post before, and normally I give a blanket no to a request for one. But, Assistant Federal Public Defender extraordinaire Jon Jeffress wrote a great piece about the D.C. Circuit’s recent decision in United States v. Hite that I’m very pleased to publish here.
If you’re looking at this as a precedent for other guest posts, please know that if you are an AFPD or credible attorney working in the federal system on criminal cases, I’d be happy to look at anything. Otherwise, no.
Finally, I should say that the opinions here are solely Jon’s, not those of his office or anyone else. Except where he’s quoting the D.C. Circuit – those are the opinions of the Circuit.
