It’s another episode of Legal Defense with attorneys John Birdsall and Kirk Obear on 101.5 FM WHBL Sheboygan! They kick off the show by discussing President Obama’s string of clemency actions, which have largely been directed at nonviolent drug offenders, and what challenges those released still face as convicted felons. Later in the show, they discuss the importance of client advocacy, especially in the face of often heavy pressure by judges and district attorneys to accept plea offers. They also take on the proliferation of fake news, and how it has real world impact, such as the December 4th, shooting at a DC restaurant.
