Interesting Read!

Check out the South Bend Tribune's series called "Judging the Judges," about how criminal punishments can vary from county to county:

There’s a widely held perception in law enforcement circles -- acknowledged by judges themselves and reportedly cited by criminals -- that if you commit a crime in St. Joseph County, you’ll be treated more leniently than if you were to commit the same crime in Elkhart County.

Lots of interesting stuff there!
