Crime Time Blogs


A few weeks ago, this site was named to the ABA journal Blawg 100. It was their editor's way to honor the best 100 blogs "by lawyers for lawyers". Although, I mentioned this back when it was first released and I added a Vote for this Blog button on the left side column, I wanted to mention each of the other blogs that were classified in the Crime Time category. If you want to vote for this blog, that is fine with me. If you find another from the list below that is more in tune with your interests, vote for them. If you do not want to vote at all, fine by me too.

Crime Time Blawgs

Blonde Justice
A pretty-in-pink anonymous take on life as a pink-suited public defender in an unnamed city, with some details fudged to keep identities private.

Capital Defense Weekly
Nothing fancy, but a solid source of death penalty news, litigation updates and case information published on the blog as they are found, then shipped direct in a weekly e-mail.

Clews The Historic True Crime Blog
Proof positive that truth is stranger than fiction, Clews draws in true-crime enthusiasts with stories from the horrifying to the surreal.

Crime and Consequences
Takes a prosecutorial, victim’s-rights view of the criminal justice system and is hosted by the Criminal Justice Legal Foundation.

Crime Scene KC
All the crime that’s fit to print in Kansas City. The cops’ beat is updated throughout the day and organized by dozens of criminal justice categories.

Grits for Breakfast
Covers criminal justice news and events, with a healthy dose of Texas-size politics.

Meeting the Sin Laws
Like the blog says, nothing generates more controversy (except maybe when a Wal-Mart comes to town) than when a strip, er, gentleman's club opens up. Covers a range of so-called vice industry laws and legal developments.

Sentencing Law and Policy
Highly respected and oft-cited, Professor Doug Berman’s scholarship and avant-garde commentary is open for discussion.

Simple Justice
Entertainingly jaded take on criminal justice news and issues within and sometimes beyond New York City’s borders.

The Chicago Syndicate (Yours Truly)
The Syndicate blog has made our hit list as a go-to site for courtroom mafia news. Syndicate is a historical repository for a list of infamous made men—plus, recently, marathon coverage of Chicago’s Family Secrets trial.
