Just another question for legal eagles that perplexes me. In the USA and here I suppose,accused murderers,child killers etc are defended,in some cases,by very expensive law firms. Now these prisoners are some of the most deranged killers alive so who pays for these top flight lawyers. They are entitled to a public defender but these law firms are the cream of the cream. Who foots their bill? I realise that some hope to use the trial as a way of enhancing careers or providing the basis for a future book but there are so many top firms representing multiple killers of the worst kind who stand no chance of release. Who funds their massive bill. Is it Amnesty with that Stafford bloke? They are not on my charity list! I once saw him trying to get a death row inmate spared after he admitted raping and killing three young children,I was rather hoping that Stafford ended up in the chair by a mistake but that's just me. Just a trivial question to satisfy an old man's curiosity if you can.
