Federal prosecutors in Philadelphia take pride in the quality of justice afforded defendants in criminal cases. Only guilty people go to jail in their courts, the prosecutors contend. But their zeal to ease the burden on city courts by transferring routine drug cases to federal court may have caused a miscarriage of justice in the case of Pablo Ortiz, 30, who lives on Fairhill Street near Pike in North Philadelphia, a federal judge said yesterday. U.S. District Judge Thomas N. O'Neill Jr. yesterday ordered a new trial and bail for Ortiz, a landscaper and National Guardsman who has spent the past 58 days in prison.

SEEING HIS MUG SHOT featured in Monday's "Week's Most Wanted" feature in the Daily News rattled one homicide suspect enough that he surrendered to police. William "Slug" Rogers, 20, who had been wanted in connection with the fatal shooting of a 28-year-old man after an argument — possibly over a bicycle — in March on Edgley Street near 23rd in North Philadelphia, surrendered at Police Headquarters about 1 p.m., according to James Burke, supervisor of the U.S. Marshals Eastern Pennsylvania Violent Crimes Fugitive Task Force.

Maybe you remember him. Ron Hunter. Blow-dried hair, baby blues, solid chin, and The Look - earnest, serious, quizzical. The classic TV news anchor. Way back when, he was one of the musical chairs over at Philly's KYW-TV (Channel 3). He was the pretty boy hired with much hoopla in October 1978 to replace Vince Leonard, the dean of local anchors, on the 11 o'clock news. Chances are you wouldn't recognize him today from his mug shot - the one police took after they arrested him for allegedly breaking into a neighbor's house to steal a box of Kraft macaroni and cheese, a container of Hungry Jack biscuits and a pound of ground meat.

IF THE Smoking Gun Web site has it right, then James Frey is a dirtbag. Worse, a dirtbag who hurt those the least equipped to withstand his harm. He's the guy who apparently hoodwinked me and a few million others who bought his book, "A Million Little Pieces. " It's marketed as an autobiographical non-fiction account of his successful battle against addiction, arguably the hottest read in the country, largely due to Oprah having featured it on her Book Club. My wife read it and recommended it to me. I read it and recommended it to my radio audience.

More kudos for Masch I write in response to the recent revelation that Michael Masch, former city budget director, vice president of budget and management at the University of Pennsylvania, and one of the mayor's appointees to the Philadelphia School Reform Commission, does not hold a bachelor's degree (article Jan. 30). Given my experience as a student of Mr. Masch, I was surprised that he does not hold a college degree. What I was not surprised about was the simultaneous revelation that at no time did he ever mislead anyone as to his academic record.

IT'S A MUG SHOT that's been seen around the world. It shows the face of Shanesha Taylor, a distraught mother of two, tears streaming down her face. Taylor was arrested on child-abuse charges last month after leaving her 2-year-old and 6-month-old sons locked in a hot car in Scottsdale, Ariz., while on a job interview. Most of us who read about what happened turned away from Taylor's anguish. Not Amanda Bishop. The 24-year-old New Jersey resident got busy, launching an online fundraising drive that has raised more than $100,000 for Taylor.
