Update: grand jury indicts “Thugs Lawyer”

by Walter Olson on January 20, 2010

“Peter Q. ‘P’Ta Mon’ John, who advertises himself as ‘The Thugs Lawyer,’ was indicted Thursday on charges that he conspired to have attempted murder charges against two local rap music executives dropped.” [Baton Rouge Advocate via Above the Law] Earlier coverage of John here and here (his advertised $500 “Expungement Special”).

I was baffled at the quote until I read the story. It might be better to say that Thug Lawyer was indicted for aiding and abetting perjury, filing of false affidavits, and obstruction of justice.

If lawyers could be indicted simply for “conspiring” to have criminal charges against defendants dropped, God help us all, lawyers or not.
