Troubles for a Glace Bay man

More problems for Thomas Ted Barrett.

The Glace Bay man has lost his latest lawyer, Michelle James, after less than a month, according to CBC.  The Barrister’s Society declared there was a conflict of interest because another lawyer in James’ firm represented Barrett’s co-accused Morgan McNeil who pleaded guilty last September to manslaughter in the death of Laura Jessome in 2012.

Barrett’s three-week trial is still set to begin May 1st, but now he has to find another lawyer.
