The press does not always publish the entire set of facts, they make mistakes and do not correct them. But Hey, at the end it is all OK, Attorney Martin E. Regan, Jr. once again fought for his client’s rights and freedom and won! This morning an article appeared in NOLA.com stating that Attorney Regan had been held in contempt by Judge Johnson ordering him to serve 24 hours at the Orleans Parish Prison, while he attempted to protect his client’s rights not to testify by advising his client to invoke Fifth Amendment Privileges. The Judge quickly rescinded the order, but the article in NOLA did not report this, nor did the press bother in a timely manner to update the article, or clarify what had been written.
Let’s just say this, Martin E. Regan, Jr. is interested in only one thing when he appears in court, before a judge, with a client. That is to protect his client’s rights that had been entrusted to him – – even if it meant going to jail!
Today was a victory for the criminal defense attorney who was willing to risk his own freedom to protect the rights of his client.
Year after year, Martin E. Regan Jr., the firm’s senior partner, has dedicated tireless efforts on behalf of the accused and produce wins for clients that a less determined advocate would have thought hopeless. Martin E. Regan Jr.’s ability to tackle and win tough criminal cases has resulted in verdicts of acquittal in many highly publicized trials.
