This defense is really, really serious

The Strib reports that Rep. Mark Olson, R-Big Lake, will use a "battered husband defense" in the prosecution against him, slated to start this week. (Click here for Strib article.)

I found a quote from Olson's defense attorney, Jill Clark, to be particularly informative: "This is a case where there really is a battered husband defense," she told the Strib.

Hmm. Now the question is: What would the defense attorney tell us if there really wasn't?

My own former criminal clients excepted, of course.
