Merritt Rahn Gets New Lawyer For His Appeal

  
YNN News reports: "There is a new lawyer in one of the area's highest profile criminal cases. YNN has confirmed that attorney Jeffrey Wicks is now representing former Greece Police Chief Merritt Rahn. Wicks replaces attorney John Parrinello who filed an appeal shortly after Rahn's conviction."

Did Parinello dump Rahn because Meritt ran out of money? Johnny P. is only as good as the coin you pay him. Very telling that he dropped Rahn.

To 5:17PM ~~ I don't think anyone got "dumped." Parrinello stated at the end of Rahn's trial that while he laid the groundwork for an appeal should Rahn want to go that route that he (Paririnello) isn't an appeals attorney. I hate to shoot holes in your theory, but that's what was reported earlier this summer ;)

5:17 JP is a defense attorney. There are family law attorneys for divorces and wills and trusts, ambulance chaser attorneys, corporate attorneys and civil rights attorneys that help with EEOC cases. But doesn't that Wickes guy advertise on TV? Rahn will be out of jail before the state hears the appeal. He should not waste the money unless he wants to clear his name. That would be worth it.
No one has ever dumped JP.

To 8:41AM ~~ FYI, Parrinello said it himself. Unlike SCATS, your spoon has been dipped in the rum ?

To 9:44AM ~~ You sound very experienced with this. You didn't like your court appointed lawyer?

Scats, why do you always acuse those who disagree with you of being drunk or on drugs? Did you have a passed problem with substance abuse? Or someone you were very close to?

SCATS said...

To 9:24PM ~~ To answer your questions ... I'm with the "Just say no" campaign ... No ... and no ... :)

You didn't answer the question about why you treat peopple so poorly. Interesting.

SCATS said...

To 2:46PM ~~ Actually, I did. Three questions were asked. Three responses were given. I'll make it as clear as I can.

1 - "Scats, why do you always acuse those who disagree with you of being drunk or on drugs?"
A - I'm with the "Just say no" campaign.

2 - "Did you have a passed problem with substance abuse?"
A - no

3 - "Or someone you were very close to?"
A - no

I still don't understand why you won't admit you are arrogant and will say terrible things about people you don't know (breaking your own rules) simply because they disagree with you. Accusing people of being on drugs when you don't even know them is slanderous imho.

I guess I said it for you so you won't have to.
