High-Profile Attorneys to Defend Students

Written by

The five students arrested in December for drug-related charges will be represented by high-profile criminal defense attorneys, who have previously represented the likes of the Wu-Tang Clan and Temeka Lewis, one of the defendants from the escort service patronized by former governor Eliot Spitzer, DNAinfo is reporting this morning.

Jose Stephan Perez will be represented by Peter Frankel of Wu-Tang renown, and more recently Jets wide reciever Braylon Edwards. Marc Agnifilo, of the Spitzer case, will defend Chris Coles, and Adam Klein will be defended by Alan Abramson. Kati Cornell, Director of Public Communication from Special Narcotics, confirmed in December that Harrison David had also replaced his public defender with a private attorney, Matthew Myers of Myers, Singer and Galiardo LLP. Michael Wymbs’s lawyer is confirmed to be Michael Bachner.

    Wymbs is repped by Michael Bachner, and David is repped by Matthew Myers.

    I expect justice to be served to those who in fact broke the law and are found guilty in a court of law.

  4. one question  

    i'm glad they were each able to secure such competent representation, but i am a little curious how they were able to pay for such big ticket lawyers if they were dealing to pay tuition?
