Shelnutt told the Daily Report that his arrest comes on the heels of multiple calls over the past several months that he has received from clients and others warning him that "they have been asked by particular law enforcement agents to sign statements they know are false against me and wear wires ... and try to get me to take medicine for a legal fee or anything they could say was illegal," he said.
Where should he go? After he does leave what stops them from going after the next guy?TippinTaco said:Just another reason to stay as FAR off the radar as possible. We live in a word with a government that if you beat the rap.. expect to get set up on other charges rather quickly. Even if this guy is guilty of any of this, they had it out for him from day one. I'm o99.999% positive that LEA's get rather ill if you as a defense attorney cost them a case they spent thousands if not hundreds of thousands of dollars in man hours and equipment and evidence such as using cocaine or something for a sting. then incomes this DA and the criminal they had all this proof on walks out free. Makes you feel like it was a huge waste of time. If I was this guy, if I walked from this, I'd get the outta dodge and never turn back. He's officially on that list that none of us ever care to be on.
