We interrupt your regularly scheduled…

…radio silence to bring you this update:

The world has ended.

In the defense interview the prosecutor and the victim advocate decided to place Stilson on top of the table during the interview. It was such a surprise to the child (and the defense attorney) to see Stilson snoozing on the table that the child came out from under the table and everyone petted him during the interview. Under these circumstances the child did a much better job describing what had occurred and it was a fairly pleasant experience for everyone.

It is also less likely that a defense attorney would engage in aggressive questioning when a dog is seated or lying in between the attorney and the witness.

If the witness and facility dog have not had a previous experience together, be sure to arrange for them to have at least 45 minutes to interact and play with one another before the interview begins.

    Bummer, I thought maybe you were on Dancing with the Stars and I missed it.

    Just been continuing the unending search for truth, justice, mercy and the American way. Glad to see you are posting again!

      I auditioned for the new season of “Real Public Defenders of Connecticut County”, but then they told me there was no such show and I should stick to watching Raising the Bar instead.
