I have come to believe that many defense lawyers actually sleep well at night after getting a rapist or murderer off on a technicality. Defense attorney Nancy Hollander of Albuquerque,NM appears to be just that type of counselor who believes even the most ruthless, sadistic, and psychopathic criminals deserve their day in court.
In the picture you see, the words “Lara Mason experienced a lapse in judgement”(attempted murder Nancy!) had just issued from what were once the very sexy lips of a lawyer who is defending a woman who attempted to poison her husband with Ricin. Her intentions to kill her husband this way was corroborated by an undercover police officer.
Granted there are many mitigating circumstances including verbal and physical abuse along with countless instances of substance abuse and reckless behavior. Mason claims she feared for the safety of her children, but trying to poison her husband is no solution here. Get the hell out of Dodge would have been a better choice don’t you think Lara?
I have one question for Nancy Hollander that cuts to the pith of her willingness to defend scummy lowlifes. Would you do it for the much more modest wages of , say, an electrician or carpenter? Your very certain response in the negative affirms that you are in it for the big bucks that a relatively high profile lawyer rakes in. Sweet Dreams Nancy.
