The Bubba trial, as glas as I am to see it resolved in favor of Bubba and the first amendment, is far from over. There is now an investigation into whether the attorneys caused a mistrial.
This TV story is almost 2 weeks old, and a lot has transpired since then. I know that the Bar is involved, and that another State Attorney’s Office will be inquiring (Mark Ober’s office cannot get into this, as there would likely be a conflict as he testified for the MJ team).
There are three real possibilites:
- Bar complaints and allegations of ethics violations
- Indirect criminal contempt charges
- Perjury charges
I know that whoever is looking at this is going to be thorough. I just hope that the community will not see this a a black eye for all attorneys.
