Today people nationwide are remembering the lives of Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLelland, his wife Cynthia, and Kaufman County Assistant CDA Mark Hasse. This black ribbon is posted in their honor. Please click here for more information about them. As a former prosecutor for many years, I just cannot put into words how terrible these types of murders are.
And please also take the time to remember Paul McLaughlin, an AAG from Massachusetts who was brutally murdered. I was very fortunate to have known Paul when I was in law school. Paul was a great mentor to me–we had both attended the same college, as well as the same law school. I learned so much from his very astute perspective.
