Goings On

First, check out the new Kansas Federal Public Defender website at ks.df.org, which replaces both the old FPD and the Kansas CJA websites.




Second, we will offer a CLE on the intersection of criminal defense and immigration on March 9 in Wichita and March 10 in Kansas City. More details here. [Corrected dates].







Third, The Pitch published a feature story about CJA panel attorney Cheryl Pilate's efforts to free Lamont McIntyre (who was wrongly convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison when he was just 17 years old) and how the KCK police department tolerated and even protected the lead detective's persistent and pervasive misconduct.



And for all of the opera lovers reading this, the Kansas City Lyric Opera will present Dead Man Walking, based on Sister Helen Prejean's book about her work on death row. Opening night is March 4, details here.
 That's all for now.--Melody
