If the attorney is concerned for the client and the family, I suggest he stay safely in jail where he won't be tempted to mix alcohol and firearms. He has proven already that he suffers from a serious lack of judgement and control....

Who in their right mind would even consider having their child around a loaded gun, not to mention have them handle it? What a moronic jerk. If you have guns in your home you have to keep them away from children. How difficult is that to understand? Always, always the children are the ones to suffer because of stupid adults.

The man sends a child to bring him a loaded gun, first mistake. And the same man is drinking double vodkas, second mistake. Then the drunk pulls the trigger, third and tragic final mistake. Please put him away so he cant hurt anyone else with his drinking or guns.
Rest in peace Stormy.

I suggest the attorney get himself an attorney so when his client does it again he will be sued for representing this POS in the first place. Some people will defend anyone just to make a dollar.

The best thing for him to do is commit suicide, he wont last long in jail (NO VODKA)

I just hope they don't get a jury that decides that his mental anguish is punishment enough and that he has learned his lesson. The intent of justice should not be to let someone off the hook because they have suffered enough mental anguish or claim to have learned a lesson the hard way. I feel for him and his family and their loss; he did not intend to kill his daughter. However, he exhibited poor judgment and should be held accountable for the several bad choices he made.
