What’s wrong with this picture?

The rather worried looking woman in the middle is named Amber Abreu, and she has every right to look worried. Not only is she being charged with illegally taking prescription anti-ulcer pills to induce an abortion, but her public defender, Amanda Barker, the blond woman on the right, looks like she’s about 14 years old. Maybe it’s just a bad picture, but I half expect Amanda to blow a bubble and start twirling her hair.

But I guess that’s how it goes down in this country. O. J. Simpson gets Johnny Cochrane, F. Lee Bailey, and the best darned lawyerin’ that money can by. The 18 year old Dominican immigrant gets the public defender who looks like she just got out of law school last week.

Looks like poor Amber’s goin’ to jail. You can read the rest of this disquieting story by clicking the picture above.

    i noticed this too. when i first saw it in the paper
    at first i didn’t know which girl it was. as you
    say, the attorney doesn’t look old or experienced
    enough to defend her. if they are going to try her
    why do some women get away with having abortions
    when they are 5 or 6months along.

    see the reply to the above comment.

    if it was me in this girls situation i have to say i wouldn’t be feeling particularly confident…however, looks can be deceiving (sometimes)
    and as for why they’re charging her…well, it doesn’t seem to make a lot of sense to me..as was said above, there are those that do things at later times, but it would seem that’s ok?
    as has been said many times, the law is an ass….

    As I said, it may just be a bad picture, but she sure doesn’t look like she’s been out of law school for long. The reason the woman was charged was because she induced an abortion beyond the 24 week threshold allowable in Massachusetts.

    What I noticed was the bailiff’s ‘do. Now that is scary.

    Whatever floats your boat, dude. 8)
