As a criminal defense lawyer, I believe in second chances. After all, people are prone to make the occasional error in judgment. I believe that not every crime deserves a jail sentence. As such, I think diversionary programs are a healthy part of the judicial system. They give relief to the courts and the correctional system. They give defendants a second chance. Recently, my belief in second chances was put to the test. Life would test my mettle. I was the victim of a minor crime. Would I be willing to forgive the nefarious ne'er-do-well that victimized me?

Picasso, Chubby Checker & Hypocrites
One of irony's greatest accomplishments is that one cannot punish the wrongdoing of another without committing a wrongdoing himself. ~Anonymous
