Lawyer Severely Punished For Failure To Conscientiously Represent Client During Trial
Lawyer Gets 2 Days in Jail for Snorting Coke at Courthouse During Client’s Trial
A Wisconsin lawyer, pictured here, who was caught snorting cocaine during the trial of his client, was punished with a harsh sentence of 2 days in jail. Other cocaine snorting lawyers have come to the jailed attorney's defense, arguing that many of their own clients snort cocaine or even shoot up heroin during their trials, so why shouldn't their lawyers have the same privilege. One of the lawyers claimed snorting cocaine could make your mind sharper, providing a better defense for their clients at no additional charge.
