I guess he is now guilty as charged. Best way to replace a lawyer you don't want is to punch out the lawyer. Great Job. I hope the new lawyer does a half-ass job with him.

Why isn't the lawyer pressing charges? Getting aggravated is no reason to punch someone!

The lawyer isn't pressing charges because he is a Public Defender and has a softer heart than if he was not associated with that case.

That lawyer is not the only one who could press charges; the State Attorney's Office could do the same as well, regardless as to whether or not the one who got punched wanted to press charges.

I am going to petition my representatives to support the "National Punch A Lawyer Day" bill, setting a special day each year to reflect on the damage the legal profession has wrought on American society and making it legal to punch any lawyer one time on that day. Awesome.

The lawyer that got punched is Doug Crickmer, a public defender and while I will agree they are overworked...this guy doesn't even try for his clients. He is putting all of his time into the Melinda Turner murder trial and is hoping that case will allow him to make a name for himself so he can start his own practice!
