It’s a difficult job, but somebody’s gotta do it!

videos.jpgLorin Duckman, a Vermont attorney, will aggressively represent his client, no matter what he has to do for said client. Take this story, for example:

Attorney Lorin Duckman represents Brian Rooney in a sexual assault case unrelated to the aggravated murder charge Rooney is facing in the death of 21-year-old Michelle Gardner-Quinn of Arlington, Va.
During a status conference Friday [June 8], Duckman told Vermont District Court Judge Michael Kupersmith it was taking him longer than expected to go through the evidence against his client.
Duckman said he didn’t want to interview witnesses who hadn’t seen the images until he had gone through all of them.

That evidence Duckman has to rigorously poor through? “Hundreds of hours of sexually explicit videos,” some of which are tapes with his client on them while others are commercial videos. Duckman pooh-poohs the suggestion that an investigator could look through all the videos because it’s his obligation to go through the “hundreds and hundreds” of hours of porn video.
