Mr. Whalen makes frequent radio appearances, tackling a broad ranges of topics and inquiries. Recently, he has discussed:
Dallas County’s new district attorney. As of January 1st, Dallas County’s newest district attorney will be Susan Hawk. This could be good news for criminal offenders, as the district attorney can change the tone for prosecutions in the area and develop programs that can help reduce jail sentences.
Holiday DUIs. As the holidays draw closer, law enforcement will ramp up measures to keep drunk drivers off the roads. Mr. Whalen urges listeners to drink responsibly and avoid driving while intoxicated at all costs. If you do get pulled over, however, he reminds you that it is your civil right to refuse a breath or blood test.
State and federal legal processes. Mr. Whalen spoke about how federal sentencing guidelines can be much harsher than state guidelines. He also explained the six steps of federal criminal prosecution—including investigation, charging, arrest and bail, trial, sentencing, and appeals.
