    Man Accused of Lawyer Attack at Trial

    The Associated Press
    Updated: 10:49 a.m. ET Feb 28, 2007
    DEDHAM, Mass. - A rape defendant stabbed his lawyer in court with a makeshift weapon during jury selection, wounding the man.

    The weapon was about 6 inches long and fashioned out of a hard plastic material. Authorities were trying to determine how Che Sosa got it.

    Court officials restrained Sosa, 37, after the attack on attorney John Courtney while a prospective juror was being questioned, said Mike Connolly, a spokesman for the prosecutor's office.

    Courtney was treated at a hospital for facial and other injuries not considered life threatening, Connolly said.

    Sosa is charged with aggravated rape and other charges stemming from an attack against a woman in 2001. He had been held in a jail before the start of the trial but was taken to a state prison after the attack.

    A hearing was planned later Wednesday in Superior Court to determine how Sosa's trial will proceed.

    Hell, that defense lawyer should know it’s not his fault; he comes from a broken home, his teachers were mean to him, the other kids didn’t play with him (didn’t want to get stabbed), society let him down.



    One question mr bottom feeder; how’s it feel to be on the receiving end for a change?

    And no you can't have any.

    Stabbing a lawyer; OK that does qualify for time off for good behavior.
