Life for Archer...

Kirby Archer pleaded guilty today, agreeing to life in prison for his role in the Joe Cool murders.

Guillermo Zarabozo is proceeding to trial. The government announced that the death penalty is also off the table for Zarabozo. When Judge Huck heard this, he moved the trial date up to August, and discharged the court-appointed death penalty lawyer, Bill Matthewman.

Here's the Sun-Sentinel coverage, the AP's and the Herald's.

12:58, I completely agree with you. You should go see this client in FDC (don't worry that he's represented by counsel, no one really cares about that "little" issue when it comes to federal cases) and tell him that you can take him to trial and get him the death penalty. Then we can all say "nice lawyering" to you.
