The Legal Watchdog is going on a brief hiatus. I have a lot of editing and proofing to do on my forthcoming book, Tried and Convicted (Roman & Littlefield Publishers, Inc.), and a lot of preparing to do for an upcoming jury trial. During the hiatus, Knightly (pictured) will rest and gather his strength for The Dog’s next post, which is expected early to mid-April. In the meantime, you can read some advance praise for Tried and Convicted, which is due out this summer, after the jump.
"Tried and Convicted brilliantly demonstrates why our constitutional rights are often not what they seem. Michael Cicchini has written a book that can instantly be understood by non-lawyers, but contains much that even practicing lawyers don't know. So you think you know your rights? Wait until you read this."

“In the contrarian spirit of political journalist Christopher Hitchens, Cicchini destroys the prevailing media-driven views on American justice.”
