PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
I love how these guys can put aside their personal feelings about murder, rape, drug dealing, and robbery, but damned if they'll defend a guy who insulted their favorite college. Killing that tree was an *incredibly* shitty thing to do, but seriously guys.
I think at least one of the public defenders had a conflict of interest with his wife on faculty at Auburn, but yeah, I agree with your point in a general sense.
It doesn't seem to be as much about personal feelings as it is about the relationship both of these attorneys have to the University. Being a professor at Auburn and being married to an employee of the university shows a potential conflict of interest. Similarly, if they were assigned to defend someone accused of murder, rape or robbery and the victim was their wife's or their own employer, I imagine they would probably ask the court to be excused from that representation as well.
Ah, the article I had read just said that he was a fan and a alumn, not that he had family working for the university. Still, all three of them did? Is that a requirement to be a public defender down there?
I'm slightly amazed that some redneck didn't think of this before. (Optional word being "think".)
To err is human. Really sucking requires having yellow stripes on your helmet.
