Yes, public prosecutors are not what is protrayed on "Law and Order" with Sam Waterson working all hours of the night, feverishly slaving away. It is 40 hours done. If you work over, you get comp time, or OT, if approved. Very few prosecutors do comp time or OT. I know this from personally living with a federal prosecutor for years.

And they actually get upset if someone expects them to stay past 5:00 to finish up something in court. I know several prosecutors who suddenly become unavailable at 4pm every day.

How did you get "nothing" after I just told you I've seen it with my own eyes. I made it a point of saying that to let you know that this is stuff I see firsthand. You're just trying to stay I'm your naive bubble where all prosecutors are great and eager to be public servants.

Yes, all public servents work for the greater good of society and mankind. Ashton is "Gandi-like" in his devotion to fighting crime. The world is a sorry place now that he no longer is serving his fellow man, in his crusade against crimes.

I am sure he is not writing this book to make blood money from a dead child. Even Baez has not sunk to that.

Jeff is now a Defense Attorney with the firm of Troum and Wallsh. He will specialize in forensic scientific evidence for criminal defense and civil law.

About Troum & Wallsh | Orlando Criminal Lawyers and Orlando Family Law Attorneys (http://www.troumandwallsh.com/about/ - broken link)

Ashton was considering running for public office ... he can use my book money for his campaign. Heck I will even go down there and campaign for him.

He was thinking about running for State Attorney for the 9th Judicial Circuit of Florida ... if he did, he would be running against his former boss Lawson Lamar.

Ashton's positives outweigh any negatives from the Casey Anthony trial.

First of all I never said the bolded text. No way are all prosecuters great. Second, your observations prove diddly. Now if you had took part in a study observing hundreds or thousands of prosecuters to get a picture of their ethics, attitude toward their jobs, and so forth, then your statements would hold water. How many prosecuters have you been able to observe in your lifetime? How many have you gotten to know personaly? Likely not many.

Now, let me save us both some time and I'll just go ahead and say that yes, you could turn that same question around on me and no, I would have no defense. Maybe I am naive, but I do think that there are many out there that are very dedicated to what they do and they believe in the cause. In my humble opinion, going off of what Ive seen, read, and heard about Jeff Ashton and his entire career, I would say hes one of the good ones.

Well we need good ones on both sides ya know. There are aplenty of innocent peoiple convicted in this country every year. Just too bad he didnt join up with the Innocence Project though. I think it would have been a good fit for him.
