Some highlights from a 1965 Reader’s Digest article about criminal law in Los Angeles:
Referring to all of the lawyers at the DA’s office, the District Attorney says, “none of my men…”
A recent law school graduate is referred to a “youngster.”
“Known racketeers” are a concern.
One criminal is described as a “tramp.”
A mistaken belief that he had a “venereal disease” put one defendant on a road that eventually caused him to cross paths with the aforementioned tramp.
The defendant who thought he had a venereal disease plead guilty, got a suspended sentence, and eventually became a doctor.
