When Life Gives You Oranges…

When Life Gives You Oranges…

We have all heard the saying “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade” but sometimes life gives you other fruit, and we need to figure out what and how to make something out of what we are given.  Twenty-four months ago I would never have thought we would be spending so much time in Florida, and yet – here we are.

App Review: Libby the Library App

App Review: Libby the Library App

It’s rare for me to pick up a physical book these days.

Justice delayed: Kristopher Chavez’s 6th amendment right to a speedy trial violated

Yesterday, February 2, 2018 my attorneys informed me that my trial originally scheduled for March 5, 2018 would be delayed until July 16, 2018.  A hearing was held and the judge decided at the urging of the prosecutor and a co-defendant to delay the case (against our objections).  This post is to create a public date-stamp to document that I believe my constitutional right to a speedy trial has been violated and as an innocent man, a great continuing harm…
