Looks like attorney Chris Darden is going to leave Eric Holder high and dry!
Chris Darden was representing Holder, the man accused of gunning down Nipsey Hussle said Friday he is withdrawing from the case, citing personal reasons. Continue on to see why…
CelebNMusic247.com reports that Chris Darden, a former prosecutor in the O.J. Simpson trial took to social media to announce that he will no longer be representing Eric Holder, aka Shitty Cuz.
You guys have been awfully good to me and my family. Thank you. I am on my way to appear for the last time in People v. Holder. I filed a Motion to Withdraw from the case. I thought I should tell you, my friends, first & before anyone else. As for my reasons for withdrawing I don’t know whether I will disclose them later or not. I only know that as a lawyer it is my duty to protect the rights of my clients even in the face of threats or angry mobs. This is the silent solemn oath we took as defense counsel.
Why Darden was Repping Holder:
Darden tried to explain that he was repping Eric Holder because of the “centuries of a history of black men hung from trees without trial, or after the thousands of cases of black men tried, convicted and executed without counsel.”
We get that, but Eric Holder executed Hussle on surveillance cameras, so this doesn’t have any merit when it comes to Holder. He shot and killed Nipsey in cold blood.
This is the legacy made for me and all of us who practice as defense counsel in the criminal courts. But allow me to say this; After centuries of a history of black men hung from trees without trial, or after the thousands of cases of black men tried, convicted and executed without counsel; after Gideon v. Wainwright & Powell v. Alabama, I cannot understand why in 2019 some people would deny a black man his 6th Amendment right to counsel of his choice. Or why defending such a man should invite threats not only against me but against my children too.
Chris had some words for the people threatening him and his family.
The O.J. attorney said:
The right to counsel is is not only a constitutional right, it is a civil right as well. Just as they were in 1995-Cowards never change. These days these cowards don’t send letters instead they sit anonymously behind keyboards threatening a man’s mother and children. And some folks think that’s funny. It isn’t and I won’t ever forget it. To those who issued those threats to my children please pay close attention so there is no misunderstanding. Later. FUCK YOU!
As for me, I continue to thrive. I continue to be loved. I continue to walk with kings. And I will continue my pursuit of fairness and justice on behalf of my clients and others charged with crimes. After 25 years some of them still haven’t learned : Their lies and threats will never deter me from my mission. Thank you again my good friends. The struggle continues. Thank you.
This is actually for the better. It would have never been a good look for Chris Darden if he got Eric Holder off on the murder of Nip.
