    Obviously, this guy is committing professional suicide, for whatever internal reasons he may have. A person in his position has to know how something like that will ultimately play out. Furthermore, he chose a method (texting) that created electroinic proof of what he was doing. Once again, he had to know that as well.

    Sounds to me like he just snapped. He was going through a divorce at the time, I note.

    I'm not defending him - not for a second. Merely commenting on this rather unusal aspect of the case.

    It strikes me so violently that his conduct is unethical and illegal...yet I can't really name a code or law he violated. Witness intimidation, mebbe?

    He didn't violate any law. Not witness intimidation - he wasn't trying to get the gal to not testify against her ex-boyfriend.

    Ethically, however, it is the equivalent of a death penalty case.

    I would say that unless he plans on opening his own practice, his lawyer days are over.

    I've met men like him. Combine arrogance and a hot 20 something, and all common sense and decorum go out the fucking window. TFB

    Karma's a bitch counselor.

    Whoa, he had the guts to say this is a non-news story? An elected DA preying on a domestic violence victim? The man obviously has more balls than brains. Hope the fine citizens remember this when he comes up for re-election.

    But if the board hasn't gotten a complaint, it can't do anything. I hope somebody gets her on the phone to get one started - this guy shouldn't have a license.
