This is not a good way to convince the judge you're innocent

Postby knapplc » Thu May 25, 2006 11:41 am

BOSTON (Reuters) - A man charged with murder in Massachusetts was so angry with his lawyer's performance he attacked the attorney in court, trying to strangle him as a shocked judge looked on, Boston radio reported on Wednesday.

"I think he just didn't like the way some of the rulings the judge was making was going yesterday morning," attorney Bruce Carroll told WBZ Radio of the Tuesday morning attack by defendant John Gomes in Boston's Suffolk Superior Court.

"He eventually stood up, started saying something and reached over and grabbed me by the throat," said Carroll.

Several officers intervened before the 6-foot (1.8-metre), 250-pound (113-kg) Gomes was separated from Carroll, the radio reported. Carroll had tried to withdraw from the case last week but the judge denied his request.


We could probably dispense with the rest of the trial right now and proceed on to the sentencing phase. 8-o

Wonder if the judge feels stupid now. :-b

What a loony. If the jury saw that, I think he's toast. Elmer Fudd could get him convicted now. :-b

It's a Reuters news story. Whoever got it off the wire probably got the international version.

Gomes kinda looks like a madman.

I always thought he was spanish but then I saw him on TV and he looked just like a madman who was white. I guess I used to think his name was Gomez not Gomes.

oh well
