    Wednesday Jan 20 | via Lawyers, Guns, and Money 

    Steve Lubet has tracked down the person who could well be Gideon Lewis-Kraus's source for the off the record claim in this part of GLK's profile of Alice Goffman: When it comes to Goffman's assertion that officers run IDs in maternity wards to arrest wanted fathers, another short Internet search produces corroborating examples in Dallas, New Orleans and Brockton, Mass., and a Philadelphia public defender and a deputy mayor told me that the practice does not at all seem beyond plausibility. First, Lubet found GLK's "corroborating examples," and discovered that they in no way actually corroborated Goffman's assertions .

My bf and I got into an intoxicated fight, he is facing 2 attempted murder charges and my statement does not reflect whole truth
My bf did something to make me upset, we had been drinking and I snapped and was the first aggressor. In restraining me he grabbed my throat, I lost my balance and hit my head knocking me unconscious. I attacked him again and once more he grabbed my throat. In my statement it was not revealed how I attacked him twice, I used the wrong word "choking" which got him attempted murder charges. Also, some things in the report were not true that I do not recall saying at all, incriminating him even more. These charges against him are unfair, we are both at fault and I need to fix this. What is the best route to clear this up. The prosecutor has photos, he has priors, making this a strong case, but I was out of control and am to blame as well
If there were no other witnesses, you can invoke your 5th Amendment right against incriminating yourself. The DA wont...
