Sorry for the lack of posts as of late.Â I was on vacation in Orlando and I have 4 tests this week alone.Â I will still try to get as much as possible out in the meantime.Â It is always a pleasant surprise to see no nightmare clients of the week.Â In fact, Chris Henry, who has been arrested 4 times in the past 10 months, got out of doing jail time for possession of a concealed firearm and will serve a probation term of 2 years [Bengals’ Henry avoids jail time with guilty plea].Â The test will be for Henry to show that reducing the charge will in fact not make him believe that he can commit another crime and get away with it.
