In this month's podcast episode, Corrie talks with York County Appellate Public Defender Brian McNeil about recently decided Commonwealth v. Peck, wherein the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania addressed the issue of whether the Commonwealth can prosecute defendants for drug delivery resulting in death where the alleged delivery occurs outside Pennsylvania. Although that issue is a pretty narrow one, Brian and Corrie's discussion expanded to a far more universal one about statutory interpretation and the difference between political and judicial conservative ideology that frequent appellate advocates would do well to consider in forming their own arguments.
