It’s hard out here for a public defender

Poor Dan Hall.

The South Carolina public defender attorney was filling in for a colleague at the sentencing hearing for defendant Lamarcus Williamson. It was near the end of the work day — his birthday, no less. At the hearing, Williamson was sentenced to 15 years for robbery, drug and assault.

On his way out, he gave Hall something, and it wasn’t a birthday gift.

The good news is that Hall was fine, suffering a bloody mouth, and perhaps a thick lip.

The judge gave Williamson six more months in jail for the attack. Not like he’ll notice.
