PDS Launches Criminal Law Blog
The Public Defender Service (PDS) has just begun a blog — the PDS Criminal Law Blog — that reviews recent D.C. Court of Appeals opinions. With Samia Fam, Nancy Glass, Jackie Frankfurt, and a handful of other public defenders sharing responsibility for the writing, the blog will certainly have some heavy hitters behind it. The most recent entry covers Vines v. United States, a July 2013 opinion dealing with whether or not two counts of malicious destruction of property merge. This is yet another example of PDS supporting the legal community in D.C.
