An attorney confesses that she had knowledge that her client committed a 22-year-old murder that another man was serving time for, but could not come forward because of attorney-client privilege.
Did You Know?
The judge granted Richard Morgan pretrial release on the condition that he surrender his passport and be confined to his home with an electronic monitoring device, however she fails to set a bail amount and even says "bail is denied". When bail is denied a defendant is remanded into the custody of the department of corrections, being confined to house arrest is a form of being out on bail. See more
[about Ingrid Block
Yeah, boo-hoo-hoo. She let him rot in prison for two decades. What the hell is wrong with her?
If she had come forward, she would have been disbarred, maybe gone to prison.
For providing evidence that would set a wrongfully accused man free?
Only Massachusetts allows an attorney to break privilege if he or she knows of actual innocence and since privilege doesn't die with the client, she just committed career suicide.
