Asshole of the Week

This is going to be a weird asshole of the week because it's not something that was done this past week but it's a reflection of yesterday's events. This week's asshole is Mark Geragos. For those of you who don't know, this is the lawyer that defended Scott Peterson in his murder and was the original attorney for Michael Jackson's child molestation case.

The reason why I chose Mr. Geragos for this esteemed honor this week is because Mr. Geragos not only did not win an acquittal of Scott Peterson (although the evidence in that case seemed to suggest that he was guilty) he was also fired by Jacko prior to the start of his trial. So he didn't win that case (obviously).

That is a total double whammy. What makes this worse is that prior to becoming lead counsel for Mr. Peterson, Mr. Geragos had gone on Court TV and stated that Perterson was probably guilty. He also did not prepare Peterson to go into court and be "believable." I try not to follow too many cases on TV but I followed this one closely and Peterson just looked smug every time on TV. Geragos should have done a better job of preparing his client. So, congrats Mr. Geragos, you were fired prior to the trial that could have saved your year. Asshole!

P.S. Strong consideration for all the newspaper headline writers that undoubtedly will use the head line with the words "BEAT IT" when talking about the Michael Jackson verdict.

"Beat It" was also used heavily to describe what he (allegedly) did with the little boys...

Anyone who hired a prxxk like Geragos has GOT to be guilty by association.

So glad he lost the recent murder case defending scumbag Bulos Zumont in the strangulation/arson death of his battered girlfriend, Jennifer Schipsci.

He seems love love defending Super narcissist murderer/molester types.
