Is there a lawyer in the house?

Legal scholar Jessica McBride asks:
Should the states get to decide if a man can legally murder his wife or a woman her husband?
Illusory Tenant answers:
That is precisely what the States get to decide, always has been, and as a matter of fact, it wasn't all that long ago that adultery was a successful affirmative defense against a murder charge.
In which case there might not be the ex-Mrs. Bucher, but the widow Bucher.

  1. And, if anyone knows adultery, it's Trial-Lawyer, Never-A-Day-As-Judge Paul Bucher.
