We heard from the prosecution last week in the matter of Denning McTague's sentencing; now Travis has the first part of his report on McTague's 89-page defense motion.
The first line is a doozy: "By all accounts, Denning McTague is a quiet, unassuming, and fundamentally decent man." Yes, if by 'fundamentally decent man' you mean 'trust-abusing thief'.
Travis adds "As regular readers know, all of these defense memos and briefs make you want to place laurels at the feet of the thieves in question. And that’s what they’re supposed to do. But I felt like donating to the McTague defense fund by the time I’d made it through 28 pages of triumph over adversity. After 89 more pages of friendly testimonial I wished I was DMcT."
Ugh. The judge won't be able to throw the book hard enough at McTague.
