Lawyer defends wife

18 Jul, 2014

Leanna Harris hires Lawrence Zimmerman, the same attorney that represented Richard Jewell, to speak on her behalf. In her defense, Zimmerman states:

Newspapers, television and online media have fostered a poisonous atmosphere in which Leann’s every word, action and emotion or failure to cry in front of a crowd is scrutinized for some supposed hiding meaning…In much the same way, the press unjustly harassed and hounded Olympic bombing hero Richard Jewell when he didn’t behave as some thought he should.
