Some us are scared of the mere idea of getting into a fender-bender with a lawyer. But some of us, on the other hand, have the temerity to go and rob the City Attorney's house. Yesterday, Robert McChesney was sentenced to 6 years in prison after burglaring the Windsor Village home of one Rocky Delgadillo, the city's top law enforcement officer. Delagdillo was elected in 2001 and is seen as a guy with serious political ambitions.

Delgadillo played football at Harvard before hitting the books at Columbia Law School. McChesney had just finished a stint in Folsom Prison on a drug charge. As for Rocky's future? Well, Jim Hahn made the move from City Attorney to Mayor in an easy jump. Rocky could seek to do the same - or he could strive for a gig in Washington. We'll have to see how it plays out in future elections.
