The Constitution is Not a Loophole

Thursday, October 16, 2014 7:00 AM | Anonymous

Arizona Daily Star recently included an op-ed by AACJ President David Euchner entitled “The Constitution is not a loophole.” This was written in response to an article published in the same paper on September 28th by the new courtroom beat reporter Patrick McNamara, “’Not competent’ loophole frees some offenders.” In short, McNamara’s article said that people are committing offenses, being found not restorable and having their cases dismissed, and then committing new offenses, and there is nothing we can do about it. As if that was not bad enough, the Southern Arizona criminal defense community was enraged at labeling a bedrock constitutional principle as a “loophole.”

You can read the op-ed online here.
