Okay, should those those accused of white collar crimes be treated different than those accused of other felonies?
The way defendants in a case of alleged corruption in the Pennsylvania Legislature has raised the ire of a defense attorney. Attorney Joshua Lock, of Harrisburg claims the defendants were subjected to “mindless, even medieval cruelty “ by the prosecution.
The offending action: Parading defendants in handcuffs past the media.
Senior Deputy Attorney General K. Kenneth Brown II defended the action saying: "A felony is a felony, and if it is a felony, you get cuffed. The law makes no distinction for white collar crimes, and neither do we."
