I am not a lawyer. I'm a mystery writer and author of books on educational technology. In my "past lives" I've been a science editor, college teacher, technical writer, and corporate training consultant. And, yes, a former juror with strong opinions about the experience. I firmly believe that every defendant is entitled to the presumption of innocence until the moment the jury speaks.
If any individual (who is not a public figure) objects to my use of his or her name in any of my blog posts, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to ask me to remove your name. I will comply promptly.
