Widder, SASS #59054 Posted June 17, 2019 Share Posted June 17, 2019 Some States have a law that basically states if in the commission of a crime and someone dies, the criminal (regardless of the type crime) can be charged with murder of one degree or another. A good lawyer represents the criminal and thru some unlawful tactics and a fabrication of facts, the criminal is found innocent of the more serious crime of murder. Basically, the lawyer committed an unlawful act during the defense of the criminal. Then the criminal goes out and commits murder. Because of the unlawful act of the lawyer, which proceeded the more serious crime of murder, can the lawyer now be tried for murder because it was his criminal act which freed the defendant, which in turn has now caused a death? ..........Widder Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
