Friday in Mt. Pleasant
For the first time in many years, I am back in a courtroom. At one time I covered killers and other scoundrals. Today, I am watching the trial of five men accused of violating South Carolina’s gambling statute.
The charge is a misdemeanor. If convicted, the guys will more than likely pay a small fine. If you hadn’t gathered by my presence in the Lowcountry, this trial is about much more than a misdemeanor. Though I don’t feel like typing it all on my iPhone’s screen, this is a case that has one of poker’s bigger names as an expert witness and more than a couple Perry Mason moments.
I miss being in a courtroom. After years of doing this on TV, it feels really good to be back in my current capacity as a…whatever I am.
I have to get back inside.
Happy weekend, all.
