When the tables turn and the same injustice that has been happening for decades to thousands of others......happens to someone who has the ability to fix it, then all of a sudden a solution is proposed.
In 2007, we personally experienced "Trial by Ambush" in Hanover County, VA.....with ZERO Discovery available to us but yet we were faced with a Plea Deal and if we didn't take the deal then the unknown Discovery would head to a Grand Jury.
In 2014 a lengthy study by an independent Committee was released that strongly supported reform. Nothing happened.
Then in 2015 the VA Supreme Court took up the issue but in the end (December 2015) in a one-paragraph decision, they too declined to take ANY action.
But now that a Virginia Delegate has personally experienced
's extremely unjust no-Discovery
rule (goo.gl/Qqqj6x, goo.gl/lQXu7t, goo.gl/arWBZ8,

here we have a Bill by that specific Delegate
proposing a fix for 2017. Virginia
It's about time HB2452 was proposed in
, but the irony
and hypocrisy that comes with it is almost too much for me. Virginia
