If you're interested in criminal law but you're not yet following Michael O'Hear's Life Sentences Blog, well, tic toc. Check out his latest post describing how a pro se defendant got caught up in a maze of state and federal law and narrowly missed a filing deadline with disastrous results. The post -- titled Delay in Criminal Procedure: What's Good for the Goose Is . . . Well, Never Mind -- has a nice ironic twist, too, which makes it well worth the read. It is also cross-posted here on the Marquette University Law School Faculty Blog.
