I told you about the lawyer and provided you with a link to the story of the attempted rape prosecution of Vincent R. Griffin (pic, left) whose attorney, Gerald T. Noel was suspended mid-trial for among other things, being incompetent. Did you think that was odd? I did. Wait till you hear what happened next--Griffin apparently now habituated to poor representation convinced himself that he could do just as good a job at defense and took over his own representation with the Court's permission! Apparently, Griffin was right, he was no more competent than his bodily-removed lawyer.
As you might expect, Mr. Griffin was convicted, here's the link to the story at the Columbus Dispatch. I really think this guy's ineffective assistance of counsel on appeal seems pretty sound.
