May I introduce Nancy Jo Grant, whose story I discovered over at the citizen's resource, Caught.net. I for one found it informative, riveting, and rather frightening. Call me naïve? Let's see what you think.
Of Nancy Grant
Unauthorized Practice Of Law
In the year 2000 I had two sons in jail. They’re both home now and doing fine. As their mother I would have attended every hearing but discovered they were not having any. What was and still is going in the DeSoto County Courthouse are plea deal hearings held behind closed doors inside 12th Circuit Judge James S. Parker’s chambers. The public is not allowed. The closed door hearings are being conducted through audio visual and, at times, an inmate is physically taken there to be threatened. If an inmate is offered a plea deal and does not take it then he/she remains in jail until they are offered another deal, months later.
