Jeffrey Stone and Jocelyn Francoeur were mentioned on November 26 by The Am Law Daily regarding their roles as pro bono prosecutors for the U.S. government in a case referred to them by Judge Kennelly. "[W]hile this certainly wasn't the crime of the century, I'd never [been a pro bono prosecutor] before so it seemed like something worth pursuing," said Mr. Stone. In a bench trial before Judge Kennelly, Mr. Stone and Ms. Francoeur prosecuted a woman on charges of contempt of court and obstruction of justice after she threatened a witness during her brother's criminal trial. Mr. Stone said the case was "an interesting psychological experience. Since 1991, I've probably spent at least 50 percent of my time looking for defenses or mitigating circumstances. On an emotional level, this was a more difficult balance than I thought it was going to be."
