    Lawyer says jail hanky-panky was "a hug gone bad," not sex

    Despite former public defender Theresa Olson's explanation that it was only a "hug gone bad," two King County Jail guards testified yesterday that they saw her doing much more than that with her client, a man facing triple murder charges, in a jail meeting room two years ago. "I thought I saw two individuals having sex," said King County corrections officer Leander Glenn.

    The guards' testimony came during the first day of a Washington State Bar Association disciplinary hearing that will help decide Olson's professional fate in a scandal that has endured in Seattle's legal and law-enforcement communities.

    Olson is accused of having sex with client Sebastian Burns, later found guilty with friend Atif Rafay of killing Rafay's father, mother and sister in their Bellevue home.

    The state bar claims Olson broke a legal-ethics rule adopted in 2000 that prohibits lawyers from having sexual relations with clients. It is recommending that Olson be suspended for one year. The final decision on the proposed sanctions rests with the state Supreme Court.

    Do you not have to have a brain to become a lawyer? Where was this woman's brain?

    We don't get anywhere those types of cases here, but I remember watching a documentary about a woman who was about to be executed and her attorney's struggles to get her out of it. Her name was Wanda and it was called "The Execution of Wanda." I don't remember her last name or state. Anyway, her attorney was a fat pig who was constantly touching the family members and the prisoner and hugging everyone. I was almost screaming at my television telling him to keep his hands to himself. I don't understand that sort of thing at ALL!

    Here is the part that I find most odd:
    The state bar claims Olson broke a legal-ethics rule adopted in 2000 that prohibits lawyers from having sexual relations with clients. It is recommending that Olson be suspended for one year. The final decision on the proposed sanctions rests with the state Supreme Court. This has only been a rule since 2000?
    I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for pretending to be someone I'm not.

    i would like to know how this bimbo pulled this off...in "my" jail the attorneys visit their clients in consultation rooms that are private as far as hearing conversation, but open glass for viewing by personnel...for the civilian's own protection!, as well as because of the possibility an attorney could bring contraband to his/her client. thay are "wanded" as they enter facility, but not patted down. this incident is not the first either...some lawyers have become way too emotionally involved with their clients.

    If she could get anything "done" to this guy in the short time it takes to give someone a "hug," then he's worse than a one-minute man!! LOL He may want to stay in prison to avoid the shame of it all.

    This would be Jayne Weintraub if she was representing ISP. I swear that woman is in love with him.
