(Shutterstock) (Newser) – An Arizona lawyer told a client she could channel his dead wife—and that they should have sex as a result, the National Law Journal reports. Charna Johnson began handling divorce proceedings for a client in 1999, then continued representing him when the wife committed suicide the next year. Soon after the death, Johnson told the client that his wife's "spirit" was inside her, allowing her to "communicate Jan's thoughts," according to court documents. She made sexual advances but said the feelings were coming from his deceased wife, not herself. Johnson faces a 6-month suspension.
