Steve Barnes, an American lawyer and one half of Cellino & Barnes, who have advertised on television seemingly forever, has died. He was 61. Barnes perished in a plane crash. The legal firm was located in Buffalo and its ads are seen in markets with Buffalo channels, including Toronto and Ottawa.

Louis Kealoha, a former police chief and prosecutor from Honolulu, HI, has been sentenced to 13 years for federal fraud and other crimes.  
Now our U.S. prison system is a bit odd, and those convicted of federal crimes can serve their time in any federal prison in the country.  So it’s very unlikely Kealoha will be housed in Hawaii, and less likely in a high security facility, and even less likely part of the general population.

BUT.... should anyone discover he was a police chief/prosecutor, well, he won’t survive the 6+ years he will be serving.

Oh please. People always "Guy won't surrive prison" but they do. Prison is not exciting.

I'm sorry to hear of the death of a former colleague and dare I say friend Professor Robert Rennie: https://www.harpermacleod.co.uk/news/2021/january/a-tribute-to-professor-robert-rennie/

 

A consummate and learned scholar of legal practice, particularly in land and contract law, I worked with him and against him in some interesting cases. Even after I left to care for my folks, I remained in touch seeking his support as a referee for any future employment.

 

Probably will not find anyone working in the law in Scotland who had a bad word to say about him - and I can confirm a genuinely funny and deeply passionate professional.

 

RIP Robert. :(
