I'm going to investigate further tomorrow and look at the videotapes of yesterday's proceedings...I will get to the bottom of this! And really, it's not so much that my own personaly property was taken. That I can deal with. It's just a scarf (albeit an expensive one) and it didn't have any sentimental value. What I"m peeved about is that whoever took it had the audacity to STEAL from the office of the JUDGE that they were scheduled to appear in front of. Man, talk about balls-y!! Ok, granted, it could've been a co-worker, and I shouldn't point fingers...but circumstancial evidence points to the defendants who were being interviewed in the back room that morning. They had to have passed the hallway on the way out and back into the courtroom. And if it was a co-worker, then why wasn't it stolen a long time ago?
I was just sorely disappointed with people in general today. What hurts the most is that I plan to be a public defender. I haven't had a problem with it before, but today's incident really tests me. But I'll live.
