New Kansas Federal Defender Blog

The Federal Public Defender for the District of Kansas has launched a new blog, available at  http://kansasfpd.blogspot.com/ .  According to the blog's first post, the "contributors will include Melody Evans, the new Federal Public defender for Kansas, the erudite if wordy Tom Bartee, Kirk Redmond, Tim Henry, Sandy Schnack, and all the guest bloggers we can rope into contributing." 

The blog's aim will be "to present an active discussion of issues including the sentencing guidelines, substantive criminal law, evidence, the Bureau of Prisons, and developing intersections between technology and the law, with perhaps a dash of neuroscience thrown in."  Similar to the old blog, it should be a helpful resource for anyone wanting to stay up to date on federal criminal defense issues in the district.
