LOOKS LIKE the APPELLATE DEFENDER bill (Senate Bill 738) will go to SENATE COURTS COMMITTEE next week!

I have written several times about the restoration of the Appellate Defender’s office in Virginia.  The Indigent Defense Commission had to abolish the office due to budget cuts. Now you can do something about it!  Email your senator if you are in his or her district (especially the Republicans!) or can if a Virginia voter, […]

SANDY’s FAVORITE DEMOCRAT is AT IT AGAIN! A PERMANENT APPELLATE DEFENDER OFFICE for our COMMONWEALTH!

This is the letter I am sending to many places tonight or over the next few days: I appreciate the opportunity to discuss this issue with you.  I appreciate your time.  The Appellate Defender’s office would make the promise of Gideon closer to fulfillment in our Commonwealth. In 2009 the IDC abolished the Appellate Defender’s […]

NOW I CAN TALK ABOUT IT! SUPPORT SEN. CHAP PETERSEN’s budget amendment establishing an APPELLATE DEFENDER’S OFFICE!

I hinted that there was news on the Appellate Defender’s Office front.  Now I can openly discuss it! Senator Chap Petersen of Fairfax has introduced a budget amendment (here it is!) to reestablish an Appellate Defender’s Office in this Commonwealth.  It’s a tiny office at first, not even one quarter the size of the criminal […]

SANDY’S DEEP BACKGROUND says the VIRGINIA APPELLATE DEFENDER may be before the legislature this SESSION!

I have a special interest in the VA Appellate Defender’s office:  I was the first Appellate Defender in the Commonwealth from 1996 to 2000.  In 2009, the doors were shuttered due to budget cuts and the ancillary fact the appellate defender was not protected by statute.  I promised I would see about restoring the AD’s […]

There is a dark side to non-specific, across the board spending cuts. The budget amendment offered by Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) is a case […]
