Kaitlyn Hunt’s Lawyer, Having Failed Her Client, Now Scapegoats the Prosecution

Kaitlyn Hunt: Now she’s where guilty perverts belong.

Anyone who watched Tuesday’s hearing in the Kaitlyn Hunt case knows two things: “Free Kate” is guilty as hell, and her lawyer is an idiot.

Let’s admit that even a good lawyer would have difficulty representing a client as guilty as Kaitlyn Hunt. Bad cases require bad arguments, and if the guilty client insists on fighting the case all the way to trial, any attorney who accepts the fee is going to be obliged to look like an incompetent idiot from time to time. But read this statement issued by Kaitlyn Hunt’s lawyer today and see if you can spot a certain — what shall we call it? — ironic lack of self-awareness:

Translation: “My perverted client is guilty as hell, and it’s so unfair of prosecutors to keep pointing out what a guilty pervert she is!”

    I wonder if the Smiths can sue the pants off of Kates attorney for the false accusations of hittting their child. this —– needs to be disbarred.

    Just a thought… The “victim” here is 14 or 15, right? And everyone is speaking of her as a young child being abused by an adult.
    Yet when a 15 year old in Oklahoma kills an Australian, he is charged as an adult (fully culpable for his actions).
    I think maybe 15 is not as young as some think.

    Ok, so you’re saying then that the “victim” should do the same time as her adult partner since you think she’s fully culpable for her actions?
