Client gets 20+ years from federal court (low end of guidelines).
Aunt calls to ask what happened in the sentencing hearing.
Aunt, the family legal expert, has been the source of a great deal of problems in the case: "If you show accomodation he can't be found not guilty of conspiracy to distribute." Client is getting at least 10 more years from a superceding indictment which her meddling caused.
So what's her reaction when she hears the sentence? She screams at me: I'm a terrible lawyer. I'm nothing more than just another prosecutor. I should have told him to take a "grand jury." It's my fault that he's going to prison. I suck. The system sucks. It ain't fair. I suck. I'm a terrible lawyer. If I knew what I was doing none of this would have happened. God will make "all of you" pay for this. I suck.
Well, I'm going to go drink beer now. Lots and lots of beer.
