You’ve been a defense lawyer for too long when..

I’m in court watching another jury trial begin. The first witness for the prosecution is a pretty teenage girl. She testifies about how her father started molesting her when she was 8 years old. As the DA tries to elicit the details, the girl starts crying and crying and can’t stop it. The questions keep coming and she bravely answers. She cries and continually wipes the tears from her face as she recounts incident after incident. I look over toward the defense table at the defendant – the father – and his attorney. I’m thinking – that poor lawyer – and this is just the beginning. beaten-boxer
