Domingo Soto is a criminal defense lawyer practicing in Alabama. He has been a Western Union bicycle messenger, taxicab driver, candlemaker, graphics designer, freelance writer, itinerant photographer, teacher of U.S. and Puerto Rican history, an apprentice printer, a stringer, reporter and a copy editor for both underground and mainstream newspapers. He also founded and published a now-defunct weekly. Before attending law school, he worked as a legal services paralegal and now writes about the law and crime.
Written by one of the trial attorneys, Apprehended is partly a commentary on the federal system and a critique of one of its failings told in crime pulp fashion. It features some prominent issues and personalities such as the United States Attorney (now Senator) Jeff Sessions, Miami lawyers Roy Black and Steve Bronis, the Bay of Pigs, agency jealousies and machinations and governmental corruption.
