Criminal Defense Lawyer Acquitted on Federal Money Laundering Charges (a.k.a. Shades of Ben Kuehne)

It's gotten safer to be a criminal defense lawyer now.   And by extension, the general public's right to counsel has gotten on somewhat firmer ground.

In a case which echoed the federal criminal charges against prominent Miami lawyer Ben Kuehne (detailed by us earlier, click here), a Georgia federal jury earlier today acquitted a Georgia criminal defense lawyer on all eight counts in a federal indictment charging with money laundering, drug conspiracy (!!!) and other crimes.  See this story from American Lawyer Media posted earlier tonight.

This case was brought under the Bush Administration Department of Justice, whose hostility for the legal profession is beginning to become truly recognized apart from partisan political attacks and acrimony.   When the federal government suffers a double golden sombrero (i.e. 0-for-8), that suggests someone went too far in order to impress his bosses and burnish the ol' resume.
