Oh neat, so a criminal conspiracy.  That means attorney-client privilege doesn't apply.  Good jorb!

I came in here all free speech and how's that different from writing a fiction book (see "A is for Alibi") then I actually stopped and read the article (no, I don't plan on making that a habit).
Yeah, this guy actually advised a woman who was complaining of an abusive boyfriend on Facebook on how to make it look like the boyfriend broke in and cited the castle doctrine and suggested she delete the post if serious.

/I'm guessing she was cute and he went all white-knighty on her

Seems like it should bring more punishment than just losing a law license.

What a lame article, they didn't even say who ratted him out. I'd like more drama with my drama if you don't mind.

You didn't RTFA, and then have the balls to complain about the content.

That's some dark humour.

I do appreciate that the article repeats all of his advice for the edification of their readers. Thanks, Tennessean!

Oh god. That woman.

I am shocked to hear her name attached to anything about the Board without disciplinary action against her being the topic.

Law and order conservatives in Germantown and Collierville love her - but they tend not to know about her history of getting major cases and convictions thrown out because she does things like falsify evidence and withhold exculpatory evidence.

So they're putting lawyers on notice saying it's going too far to teach clients to kill someone, and that they should stick to teaching them how to fake domestic abuse and/or child abuse.

I'm never surprised at chucklefark sociopaths trying to laugh away their acts as if it was a joke.

I'm hoping I just missed the sarcasm tag, but it's literally 170 words into the article. Granted that's a pretty deep dive after the headline.

Following Sitton's advice, the woman deleted her post, but not before her ex saw the comments, the court's majority opinion shows. The man handed over screenshots of the conversation to Shelby County District Attorney General Amy Weirich, who alerted the Board of Professional Responsibility.

He advised her to 'keep mum about it' yet he:
''he posted advice on Facebook about how to make deadly force look like self-defense.''

Because fb is so private and they keep mum there...
