Legal Delicacies

A significant recent development affects the core of the Citizen story. I have written before that part of it was inspired by Juan Abel Escalante, a deputy with the Los Angeles Sheriffs Department who was shot down by gang members in front of his house, leaving behind his wife and three kids. Moved by Escalante’s story I dove right in and, using public records, created a fictional character based on the facts surrounding his life.
