Over the course of my 55-year career involving about 250 cases, I have also represented a small handful of men accused of assaulting or killing women. Several of these men were falsely accused and ultimately vindicated. Two of them were on death row, and I did their cases pro bono as well.
Ms. Roberts failed to ask me about my actual career because the truth would have undercut her false narrative. The essence of morality is truthfulness, not only for lawyers but also for journalists.
