OK LOOK, it's Your Legal Moment!

So this is the ex-con who, right after his release from prison, allegedly stabbed his 8-year-old daughter and her little friend to death in the woods for riding bikes past their curfew time.

Doesn't he look like something that haunts little kids' nightmares? It's like they called Central Casting and said, "Yeah, send us one mean ugly ex-con redneck child murderer with an anger management problem, on the double." Political considerations keep me from saying anything regarding the death penalty on here, but I just hope this person finds Jesus, or SOMETHING, during what is looking to be his lengthy stint back in prison.

Oh, I forgot to mention what he was in prison for previously... "He had argued with Laura's mother, Sheila Hollabaugh, then grabbed a chain saw and chased neighbors until someone hit him in the back with a shovel, according to prosecutor Rick Mahler in Texas. No one was injured." Ahem. Yeah. WTF??!! priceless...

In other news, what do you do for amusement when you used to be in Lynyrd Skynyrd (but quit due to "overindulgence" long before the plane crash) and now just want your royalties from "Sweet Home Alabama"? Well, you hire a lawyer. Then you decide you're paying that lawyer too much, so you hire another lawyer to sue your first lawyer. Then you decide you're also paying the second lawyer too much (especially after he loses the case), so you hire his former assistant lawyer to go after him, prompting an ethics conflict that gets written up in the ABA Journal here:

Lynyrd Skynyrd Lawyer Fight

A guy on DtS said that sounded like the title of a Drive-by Truckers song. Hehe.
