"Criminal lawyers are misunderstood people working the poor end of town who end up being confused with their clients.
That's the view of Auckland lawyer Charles Cato who, in a speech to the Criminal Bar Association, says the disdain shown by society toward them was disturbing..."
I believe comment 'Diddums!' is called for!
"...Mr Cato said work in Manukau was hard and thankless.
"It is a very busy and difficult court.... It can take a toll on one's health and family life."
I believe there are plenty of openings in the fast food and discount retail markets for those poor petals unable to take the heat.
As for being confused with their clients- they got THAT right!
I would not be suprised if more than a little contraband found its way into our prison via a few of the more bent of this profession...
