Moron Lawyer: Dropping An Anchor On Cruise Ship Is: Felony Stupidity

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A Florida lawyer for a man who lowered an anchor on a cruise ship while drunk says his client committed `felony stupidity.`

Daniel Castillo, who practices in Tampa, Fla., asked a court Thursday to dismiss a federal indictment against Rick Ehlert, the Tampa Tribune reported. He suggested charging Ehlert under a federal law designed to go after terrorists is overkill."



I don`t know who is the greatest imbecile, the drunk who lowers an anchor on a cruise ship or the lawyer who argues that his client is only guilty of "felony stupidity."

The sudden anchoring could have punctured the skin or damaged the rudder putting the lives of the crew and passengers in danger.

The drunk should be sentenced to a few years in prison for his reckless act, and his lawyer should be disbarred for felony malpractice.
