Jesse M. Barrett, a lawyer in the Northern District of Indiana, is on the verge of being appointed to the high court. The former federal prosecutor served as an associate US lawyer for 13 years, and is now almost a sure bet to become an authority on the high court. Barrett, who is young and capable, is a multitalented lawyer who has two children, one of which was adopted from Haiti.
Amy Barrett is a United States Circuit Judge
In a recent case, a panel ruled that a defendant was entitled to effective assistance of counsel, but Judge Barrett dissented from the majority ruling. She found that the trial judge’s decision to conduct a closed session without the defendant’s lawyer’s participation violated Schmidt’s constitutional rights. This case is an example of a case in which a criminal defense attorney put their own interests ahead of their client’s.
The decision in Alvarenga-Flores v. Sessions, which affirmed the denial of a man’s immigration application, is an example of Judge Barrett’s judicial activism. In the case, an immigrant was denied an asylum claim because his story was inconsistent and not credible over a three-and-a-half-year period. But Barrett’s dissenting opinion pointed out that case law in the Seventh Circuit requires that minor inconsistencies be considered when determining whether a person is admissible.
Jesse Barrett is a former federal prosecutor
After serving as a federal prosecutor, Jesse Barrett returned to private practice and is now a partner at SouthBank Legal in South Bend, Indiana. He focuses his practice on white collar criminal defense, complex commercial litigation, and internal investigations.

He also prosecuted the former director of an Indiana public library for using library funds to pay for his own personal expenses, including hotel rooms and health club memberships.
After graduating from Notre Dame Law School, Jesse married Amy Barrett. They live in South Bend with seven children, ranging in age from nine to twenty. Their children are adopted and have special needs. The Barretts also have a son with Down syndrome, Benjamin, who has Down syndrome. While Jesse has a long history of public service, he has made a name for himself in the legal community.

The couple is a proud member of People of Praise and are members of the community-based Catholic organization.

He is a People of Praise missionary
Mike Coney, a missionary from the People of Praise, is one of the most famous members of the People of Prayer. Mike was elected to the board of directors of the group in 2012. His mother, Linda, and father are also members of the group. The People of Praise are a small Christian denomination. They believe in a form of charismatic Christianity that emphasizes a personal relationship with Jesus.
As a member of the organization, Annie Reed attended People of Praise prayer services during the mid-2000s. As an evangelical Christian, she had previously encountered a charismatic worship style and was drawn to it. During one of the initial meetings, she met a member who invited her to an event. After the meeting, she was invited to many more events and encouraged to make a commitment to the People of Praise.
