A modest site by J. Richard Broughton, law professor. My faculty page and bio for the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law can be found here. This site will explore issues related to criminal justice, with a special focus on federal criminal law; the Constitution; and American politics. And, occasionally, other stuff of interest. This site does not offer legal advice. If you need legal advice, consult a licensed attorney in your jurisdiction. The views expressed here are my own, and do not necessarily reflect the views of my employer or any other entity, public or private.
