Local Prosecutor’s Blog in the News

Today’s Statesman has an article about Travis County ADA Mark Pryor’s blog, D.A. Confidential, which I first came across about three weeks ago and have since found to be worthwhile reading. Originally writing anonymously, the blog’s author was revealed to the local criminal justice community by this humorous post, which referenced Pryor’s English accent and contained a hint that he practices in the 167th District Court.

Most prosecutors aren’t comfortable blogging without the protective veil of anonymity so being outed tends to be the beginning of the end for their blogs (see Mark Bennett’s post on this topic and note that the exception he identified has since shut down his blog as well). I hope that Mark Pryor proves an exception.
