White Collar Crime Prof blogs about guilty pleas in upper management at Boeing, and about indictments of local officials in Atlanta.  Crime and Federalism blogs a new Illinois statute creating a defense to illegal weapons possession in violation of a local ordinance if the weapon was used in lawful self defense (Maybe they should call this Bernie's Law?) Crime and Federalism also provides a useful link to the Heritage Foundation's site overcriminalized.com, and a chart showing the explosive growth of federal crimes.  Talkleft recounts the tale of a Kansas man who shot and killed an intruder, but had guns and pot laying around when the police arrived to haul away the burglar.  Convicted of marijuana charges, the judge offered the miscreant the option of jail or joining the military.  (Unfortunately, 10 U.S.C. 504 prohibits enlistment of felons, unless the SecDef makes an exception based on merit).  Jack Chin
