"There are some times you have to see someone," said Schoenberg, a criminal lawyer from Mineola who needed to visit a client at the jail. "Nobody knows what's going on."

"There's a lot of people who are being inconvenienced," Schoenberg said. "It's a colossal waste of time."
It's sad to see a former criminal court bureau chief under Denis Dillion's regime whining about the system he so dearly embraced for so many years.

It's horrifying that an attorney of Mr. Schoenberg's ilk should be working on a Saturday, attempting to lend aid to people he once prosecuted.

Why is it Mr. Ronald Schoenberg retired from a prestigious job with the NCDA, only to find himself pacing the parking lot of a county correctional facility on a Saturday? I wonder if he enjoys being treated like an average schmuck?

They should just execute the inmates. This would help in ALOT of areas and also save ALOT of money. Just an idea...

It WAS not a suprise. There are signs hanging up all over that place about the new days and hours. It is their own fault that they DID NOT pay attention to the signs.

That would be a 65 million dollar palace paid for by the taxpayers of Nassau County.

If you are considering hiring former Nassau County prosecutor, Ronald L. Schoenberg, to defend you, or for any other legal matter, you may want to visit this blog, authored by an attorney offering some insight into Mr. Schoenberg's legal prowess...or lack of.

In another legal matter, U.S. District Court Judge Joseph Bianco described as "ridiculous" Schoenberg's..defense of a man convicted for possessing pornographic images of children.
