    Because he's not from that state he has to have a local attorney to confer with in order to practice in that area...One of our verified attorney's posted the terminology for it, but i cannot remember what it is

    I'm pretty sure the term is pro hac vice.

    Thus far, according to Short, the couple has allowed police to:

    Take their computer; call an Amber Alert, knowing that it would bring federal investigators into the case; take their other two children for forensic interviews; have the complete run of their home, their vehicles, a shed and a pop-up camper; take DNA and other biological evidence; obtain Lisa’s medical records, including those for well-baby visits; and conduct a polygraph examination on Bradley.

    The couple also receives five or six calls a day from investigators, said Short, who estimated that Bradley and Irwin each have spent about 40 hours answering police questions since Lisa disappeared.

    They stand ready to do more for police, said Short, who is working on the case pro bono.

    There is also an attorney Sean O'Brien
    To (police), refusing to cooperate means not wanting to sign a confession,” said Sean O’Brien, one of the attorneys.

    “That’s ridiculous,” said police spokesman Steve Young. Officers merely want to get the truth and a fresh interview with the couple would be a good start, he said.

    In an interview with The Star, O’Brien and attorney Cyndy Short said they have begun to set boundaries for how Bradley and Irwin deal with investigators.

    But they said the parents still answer questions from investigators and are prepared to continue cooperating.

    Short is local counsel for New York attorney Joseph Tacopina, and O’Brien works with the Innocence Project at the University of Missouri-Kansas City.

    Sounds like she's a good attorney. I have no doubt what she says in the Star interview is accurate. I've been around LE for years. They do good work but they can also operate with blinders. I think the polices spokesman Young is sugar coating. The questions they want answered are how, why and where did you do it. I think the police were trying to orchestrate public opinion..to put demand on the DA to go along with an arrest. On a totally different type case just two months ago, LE showing its bias went way out in the woods on a case in my area..and probably cost a young man his future in the NFL. It was heartbreaking to witness.

    If Cynthia Short is working pro bono, does that mean JT is working pro bono too since he's a more expensive lawyer?
