He was making $200,000 a year at his Sheriff’s Office job. Apart from the conflict of interests, how would he have time to represent private clients whilst holding down a full time job? This is a disgusting abuse of taxpayer funds and absolute fraud.

Also, just like, actually how? They know him! Various officers, officials, lawyers, etc in the courtroom have to know who is, yeah? And he’s there too. Doing it where they can see him. How?

I can’t even fathom how much gumption it would take to walk into a courtroom where any number of people going in and out know exactly who you are, put your shit on a desk, and announce that you’re there to do an absolutely bonkers thing that you are 100% not allowed to do.

This dude has been one of the most visible, outspoken defense attorneys in this city for decades. EVERYONE in the Philly court system knows him.

Terrible that this isn’t even shocking. Corruption in this city, and completely ignoring it, is business as usual.

The Philadelphia sheriff's department is so corrupt. If I recall correctly the last sheriff gave his buddies notice so they could snap up auction properties for cheap and the current one isn't much better. I swear this city needs Batman.

It was also a sheriff's deputy who sold the gun used in the roxborough high shooting - AFTER the shooting. He was moving dirty guns to cover for the crimes his friends were committing.

Wow. Conflicts of interest aside, this guy is getting $200,000/year for doing what exactly?

In case anyone else was wondering, "Why do we have a sheriff's office and what does it even do": the Citizen has a good explainer, and here are two different editorials saying we just shouldn't.
