poorly framed in Schenectady

David Giacalone comments on a burglary case in which the defendant tried to pin the crime on someone else and helpfully provided a photo of the man. The defendant's attorney allowed him to present the tale, but the prosecutor thought the picture looked familiar and placed it, in hundreds of picture frames sold at Wal-Mart. David doesn't buy the public defender's "excuses — and I would not like to think that the ethical and “professional responsibility” duties of an officer of the court could be so lax as to allow him to look the other way, while his client tried to pin the crime on a picture-frame model." f/k/a . . . » poorly framed in Schenectady
