Seriously I didn’t not plan for this in advance, the number and crime are purely coincidental.
Now while apparently the law was followed in this case, there is a reason I’m placing this under the criminal count.
Cantrell has practiced civil and criminal law in New Orleans for 17 years, including six as a public defender in Juvenile Court. In an ironic twist, the 43-year-old also worked as a drug court attorney.
(Emphasis mine.) While it does seem that most of the work may have been on the defense side instead of the prosecution, he still was a city employee. Charged with enforcing and upholding the law.
Now he has promptly resigned and the punishment matches what the rest of the public should see in that municipality if the article is to be believed. Still, this fits perfectly with the, “Laws for thee, not for me” tag.
State Sponsored Criminal #420: Jason Cantrell
Because laws only apply to the lowly peons. Those who work for the king are allowed to have any noun they want.
