Well He Must Be Innocent Then.

Every criminal defendant has a lawyer, and every lawyer for every criminal defendant says the criminal defendant didn’t do it.

In the case of former Falcons linebacker Prince Shembo, then, his lawyer claims Shembo is innocent.

He didn’t mean to kill the dog,” lawyer Jerry Froelich said, via D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

Froelich added that Shembo owns a dog, and that Shembo has never injured the dog.

It’s unclear whether the Christopher Moltisante defense will work for Shembo. On one hand, there were no witnesses to Shembo’s alleged crime. On the other hand, the injuries to the dog were extensive, which means that Shembo had better have a pretty good explanation for how those injuries happened.

Then there’s the fact that Shembo’s ex will testify that Shembo admitted to killing the dog. Shembo may claim that he said he killed the dog accidentally, which makes the dog owner’s testimony regarding what Shembo actually said and his demeanor while saying it critical.

Regardless, every criminal defendant in America is entitled to broad protections aimed at ensuring innocent people aren’t sent to jail. And plenty of guilty people have successfully taken advantage of those protections over the years.

fraking lawyers!
