Reason # 47 why teaching law is better than practicing it

MSNBC is reporting the case of a criminal defendant on trial for robbery and home invasion, who sneaked a bag of feces (his own) into the courtroom.  He then proceeded to smear the feces on his lawyer and throw some at the jury, nailing the computer case of one juror.  The feces-throwing incident apparently contributed to the 31 year sentence handed down by the trial judge yesterday.  According to the story, the defendant may suffer from mental illness (although it's unclear whether that factored into the trial or sentencing).

You can read the rest here.

Hat tip to Mitchell Nathan.
