    Far too lenient. What would the judge have done to the defense attorney if she had discovered he had violated an ethical rule like this?

    A long jail sentence would be appropriate. Lawyers have to overcome so much prejudice these days. Shameful!

    What happened to the prosecutor? They get away with so much nonsense.
