Lawyer Too Sleepy To Represent Client

by Mr. Lazy

It would seem that if your job is to defend a person who may spend the rest of their life in jail you’d get some rest the night before.

A defense attorney tried a different argument to win his convicted client a new murder trial: The attorney was too sleepy.

Charles R. Curbo wrote in a motion for a new trial that he could not properly represent the defendant, Tony Wolfe, because he was tired during the six-day trial in January.

This was in Tennessee, go figure. Now, normally you shouldn’t confuse fatigue with laziness, but we just did. So there.
