Saline County acquittal

The Salina Journal reported that Michael Sheahon won an acquittal in a Saline County rape/aggravated indecent liberties with a child case. Jurors in this case recognized what "investigators" so often do not: sometimes children make up allegations. If jurors applied the beyond a reasonable doubt standard more faithfully, a lot fewer of these cases resting solely on child allegations would stand.

I don't know how else to let you know. I am regularly reading your blog and find it very interesting and helpful. I have been periodically writing a Kansas DUI blog at Keep up the good work.

Thanks for the response, Jay. I'm glad there is someone out there on top of DUI law. It's not my can of worms, but there sure are a lot of clients and attorneys in need.
