Do you know the law? Kethry, co-host of Plead the Sixth, sure doesn't. Luckily criminal defense lawyers and co-hosts Staci Krause and Courtney Dailey are here to explain it. Join us as we laugh and wonder and question and explain the laws that send people to jail every day. And keep people out of it. Focused on liberty and legality in San Antonio, TX, but with wide ranging implications. This is a great place to learn about your rights and why you should assert them. But funny. Sometimes.
The crew (mostly Courtney and Staci) discuss a hard topic in the legal community: family violence and how it should be treated by the law. Get ready for lots of strong feelings.
