Defense Lawyer Live-Tweets Obscenity Case

Defense Lawyer Live-Tweets Obscenity Case

British defense attorney Myles Jackman is working on an obscenity case, defending a client charged with possession of "extreme pornography," which, in this case, means fisting porn. Jackman's client, Simon Walsh, is a former politician who was caught with the questionable content on his computer. That type of "extreme" porn is outlawed in the UK, and is punishable by up to three years in jail.

The trial has become something of a media phenomenon, even birthing the hashtag #porntrial, which is used quite frequently by Jackman himself. That's right, the defense attorney is live-tweeting a case about fisting. Check the images for examples. It's not for the squeamish.
