Prosecutor's Blog About Partying Gets Some Panties In Wad
The Harris County courthouse has been all giggly over the former blog by a young prosecutor called "Life After Esq." (Note legal bloggers inanely insist on calling their product a "blawg." We refuse.)
Life After Esq had several highlights, mostly concerning a "baby prosecutors" seminar in Austin.
It had entries apparently considered titillating, such as:
The party boat took off and I was left on the speedboat in my bikini and no clothes. I was slightly concerned about that since they were talking about going straight from the boat to hula hut. That would cause a problem for me. I seemed to be the only person concerned about this. I had a total blast. I wish we could have spent more time doing that!!Crazy!! And then there was the part where she broke the law:
(Note: "Old 3" and "Movie Star's 4" refer to other attendees.)
We started playing a game with some ice cubes. Not a particularly intellectual game. More of a game of throwing ice cubes down each others tops. I'm not entirely sure how it started. But it was quite refreshing! A whole lot of drinking and dancing later, I decided I wanted to leave and jump in the swimming pool.....Mark Bennett, who writes a good blog called Defending People, was appalled. And shocked. "Confession to criminal trespass by a Harris County prosecutor: Priceless."
We walked into the hotel and to the pool. Stupid gate was locked. That's ok, it didn't stop me. I threw off my shoes and climbed over the fence. My now old 3 and Movie Star's 4 didn't climb over. They were afraid they'd fall off the fence and get a concussion. Well I dove into the pool with all my clothes on and then climbed back over the fence.
The Life After Esq page was quickly taken down; just as quickly someone found a Google cache of the scandalous page.
We liked the blogger's description of how she lost her first trial more than the forced-party-hearty gaiety of the Austin items. Life After Esq can write an interesting blog, it appears.
But she won't be doing it anymore.
