Hopefully, the judiciary that reviews the facts of this matter will go into it with the understanding that the system is so very broken and abused, and that system of justice needs to be repaired by law enforcement officers and a judiciary who think outside the box. This should be a simple case. Just because this informant earned his living by acting as an attorney should not preclude his cooperation with the prosecution side of the justice system. This defendant was informed that he,(the attorney), was NOT representing him, in any matter or manner. Case closed!

If the traditional standards that have been applied by a judiciary that only thinks inside the traditional legal boxes that have been set up by legal scholars, law schools, and so-called ethical experts prevail, this case will be overtuned, and the system will remain as broken as ever. One more win for the bad-guys. Don't let it happen. Understand the INTENT of the law, instead of the swirling theories around it.

Another example of a criminal blaming the one who truned him in instead of himself for breaking the law.

This "lawyer" is likely going to be found in the trunk of a car some day, because if he did this to one guy, he likely did it to someone else.

Legalize it and stop the murders!!
