Attorney offers to work for free to appeal order in case involving duck's death

A Worcester, Mass., attorney says he will work for free to appeal a judge's order overtuning the conviction of a man who ran over a duck in a mall parking lot.

The district attorney originally indicated that financial constraints prevented him from appealing the judge's order overturning the conviction of Joshua Linhares, 26. Attorney Darragh Keith Kasakoff, who has extensive appellate, said he would handle the appeal for free.

Prosecutors had argued that Linhares intentionally ran over the mother mallard duck as she crossed the mall parking lot with her 12 duckling. (Video of alleged crime on link)
