Pierre Panaccio : Magnotta's Attorney
It has been mentioned in media reports that Magnotta's defense attorney, Pierre Panaccio, had previously represented the Hells Angels. Panaccio's legal dealings with the Hells Angels took some extraordinarily fascinating twists and turns, this is showcased in the following article by Mike King:
From The Canadian Lawyer July 2009
When Quebec provincial police launched Operation Piranha in February 2004 to investigate a drug-smuggling ring with links to traditional organized crime and the Mafia, they likely weren’t expecting to put the bite on a Montreal lawyer.
I share this article because thus far we have limited knowledge of Attorney Panaccio and found this article provided some insights.

At the end of this video (at 3:00 minutes almost exactly) the reporter states that the Prosecution has stated that Magnotta is also seeking another (additional??) defense lawyer out of Ontario. Anyone have another source for this or any other info?
