SIEGELMAN DAUGHTER: LAWYERS CAN’T PROTECT AGAINST UNJUST JUDGE
by Andrew Kreig
Former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman’s daughter, Dana, provided a powerful insight this week about a rarely spoken shortcoming in the nation’s legal system.
Even the best defense lawyers are no match for a trial judge determined to convict, as she told a radio interviewer.
Alabama legal commentator Roger Shuler reported her remarks Nov. 30 in,Dana Siegelman Makes A Profound Statement About The Perils We All Face From Corrupt Judges. Shuler has written hundreds of columns about the Siegelman conviction in 2006 on hoked-up corruption charges before Chief U.S. District Judge Mark Fuller of Alabama’s middle district.
