Breaking Bad at Georgetown

Charles Smith, pictured on the right, and John Perrone appeared before Magitrate Judge Deborah Robinson on Monday after the makings of a drug lab, as well as a small amount of the hallucinogen DMT, were found in Smith’s Georgetown University dorm room during an early morning raid this weekend.

Smith and Perrone, both 18, are high school friends from Andover, Mass. where they were honor-roll students.  Smith is a freshman at Georgetown, and Perrone a freshman at the University of Richmond.  The charges they face could result in ten year sentences, but that’s unlikely.  The administration of a dope slap would not be out of order.

Courtartist is me, Art Lien. I've been sketching the courts since 1976, and for most of that time the U.S. Supreme Court has been my regular beat. I've been working almost exclusively for NBC News since 1980. Courtroom sketching is a form of visual journalism or reportage drawing that is slowly dying out. Where once upon a time news organization each had their own artist covering a story, today a "pool" artist often sketches for all. It is a demanding and stressful discipline where the drawing is often done directly and under tight deadline.
