WIRTW #543 (the “terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day at the office” edition)

What was your worst day at work? Does it top the day that Cleveland criminal defense attorney Aaron Brockler had this past Tuesday?

I'll let explain what happened:

A Warrensville Heights man shocked a courtroom full of spectators Tuesday when he sucker-punched his own defense attorney after a judge sentenced him to 45 years in prison…. Cuyahoga County sheriff's deputies took down David Chislton after the 42-year-old struck lawyer Aaron Brockler in the face with both of his handcuffed fists.

A courtroom deputy's body camera recorded the attack.

Brockler, who suffered injuries to his face and a possible concussion, at least kept his sense of humor, joking to reporters,"It was pretty fun."

File this one under why I don't practice criminal law.

Here's what I read this week:
