"Motion to withdraw granted. Bailiff, remove the defendant from counsel's throat."

When a lawyer takes a case, they are obligated to see it through to the end. Especially a criminal case. And if the case is as serious as a murder case, the burden on the attorney is tremendous. Should the lawyer attempt to get out of defending their client, it takes a great deal to persuade the judge to let the attorney off the hook.

But I think this guy has a pretty good argument for being removed from his client's case...

This is a new definition of "mugging for the jury".

But what really gets my attention is it took six (six!) deputies to get him off the lawyer. Have they taken to serving PCP in the jailhouse food these days, or is he really the long lost brother of this fellow.?

Where is Mr. T when you need him?

You would be suprised what you would find in food and drinks in a jailhouse. In reality if anyone wanted to sneak something in, it could be easily done. Just look how corrupt the police force is.

I can't believe no one has posted a good lawyer joke yet. (What do you call 5 lawyers at the bottom of the ocean? A good start).

Q: What do you call it when a murder defendant tries to kill his lawyer in court right in front of the jury?
