After winning the case of a lifetime, Minneapolis criminal defense lawyer Marc Kadella welcomes the infusion of energy his career is receiving.

Miss Polly had a dolly. A beautiful daughter that she called her Baby Doll. Every day she dressed her in cute outfits and brushed her hair before they went outside to show off to the neighbors.
