Then advise her as you would another client. If she's not going to win, maybe you can negotiate a plea on her behalf.

You should just defend her op, and do your job to the fullest extent of the law... You may love her, but is she worth it? Fyl buddy

Especially in Norway, has anyone seen the trial of the guy who killed those 66 people to stop Muslims coming into Europe?

109 kind of has a point, as a law was passed in Norway recently stating that for hate crimes, Norwegians are guilty until proven innocent. This, however, is not a hate crime so 109 is wrong. Noob.

"and the first person I've loved in years" I doubt it's a good friend because that sentence implies romantic love, not friends love. It's also unlikely to be a wife or girlfriend because the sentence also implies is he fell in love with the accused recently.

Judging from the thumbs, I'm guessing people don't think op(a lawyer) has a conscience. Either that, or I'm missing something. I'm probably missing something.

I think its more a case of people saying a lawyer's conscience can't get in the way of doing their job. If you're hired to defend somebody you defend them to the best of your ability, within the limits of the law....because truthfully, the law has nothing to do with your conscience and everything to do with arbitrary legal paramaters for acceptable societal behaviour.

63, That's only if you accept that paradigm. Many of us put our own sense of morality above the law, and while this would make someone technically a bad lawyer, it does make them a good person - which is a far greater thing to be. Best legal practice =/= best practice.

Actually, no. A judge or juror would, but a lawyer is supposed to want his client to win anyway. Hence why spouses, friends, and family members often represent each other. Numbskull.

Just look at they guy's username. Obviously he's not going to learn and will still insult people like OP without proper knowledge.

What goes through people's minds when they post idiotic comments like this? You'd think they would already know that it's on FML for a reason...
