Criminal Defense Lawyer; Creator, @CrimeADay
Mike Chase is a criminal defense lawyer and creator of @CrimeADay, a Twitter feed that tweets a federal crime every day, often with a comedic touch. In addition to his practice in Hartford, CT, he performs extensive research into the curious, intriguing, and often amusing history of American federal criminal laws. He’s also counting every federal crime on the books, a task that no one (not even the US Department of Justice) has ever been able to do. Chase regularly speaks and writes on criminal justice issues, including in a recent op-ed published by The Wall Street Journal and in his upcoming book.
