I’m in court and watch as a judge listens to a man’s brother plead with the judge not to sentence his brother to 25 to life under the 3 strikes law. Although this was the defendant’s 3rd or 4th violent crime conviction, the brother told the judge about his brother’s struggles with drug addiction. His honor had tears in his eyes as he listened. And then he sentenced the defendant to the 25-life.
Later on I saw the judge in the hallway and said “that must have been tough.” He looked at me a little surprised and smiled. “Easy as pie.”
