Well I got a bit of a twofer yesterday. I was back in District Court because the docket was too crowded the last time, and this time the Clerk left time for a trial. The Court Clerks in Harford County are as good as it gets. The State offered the usual plead to everything and we will defer. I explained to the prosecutor, with whom I have had trial over the years, that I could not do worse at trial. She smiled and agreed, so a little after 11 we began and finished after 3 (there was a lunch break). The Deputy was the asshole who towed my client's car when MVA erroneously listed him as suspended, even though he had the interlock in the car. It was cleared up while the Deputy was arranging the tow, but he refused to speak to me or the MVA Interlock Rep who was on my client's speaker phone. I had to call the Harford County Sheriff himself (who was then only person working after 3:00 PM), and he not only released the car, but paid the towing bill. Whether he charged it back against Deputy's salary is unknown. The Sheriff is a stand up guy, and he was pissed at this exercise of arrogance and bullying. Two days after that, yesterday's client comes in. I see the Deputy's name, tell her the story, and suggest he needs a good beating (in court), as a payback. Well I won because he screwed up, and it was sweet. In fact, the breath tech operator was smiling, laughing and nodding in agreement with me about the screw up as the prosecutor tried to defend the indefensible. I asked the judge to consider the actions of the tech who was still on the witness stand, and that was pretty funny as well.
