My husband is a criminal lawyer, and he chooses to defend males who have sex underage girls, rapists and other criminals. What do you think of people like this?

The fact that your husband agrees to represent people accused of horrific crimes doesn't mean he lacks integrity or minimizes the horror of those kinds of crimes. As an attorney and officer of the court, he knows that our criminal justice system is dependent on ensuring that the due process rights of even those accused of terrible crimes are protected. That doesn't make him an apologist for those kinds of crimes.5

This is what lawyers are being paid for. If they are under a company or oath, then this is the ugly side of the law. Everything has an ugly side. They are being paid to do their job, even sometimes against their will. But if your husband is looking to do the case, then look, as crazy as it sounds. This is how your husband is bringing home the bacon. In court, moral ethnics are thrown out the door. The main thing is keeping your morals at home everywhere you go. I can understand that it can be a painful process because it goes against what you believe. But at the same time he is still your husband. At the end of the day, the court will be the one to decide if that person goes to jail or get probation of some sort. I say that if the girls consented to this, then there needs to be equal consequences for them as well. Not just the sex offenders.1
