We still don't know the name of the US soldier accused of killing 16 people in Afghanistan, but one of his attorneys certainly has a high profile. Seattle's John Henry Browne tells the News Tribune of Tacoma that he will assist military attorneys with the defense. Browne has defended a slew of big-name clients, most recently the Barefoot Bandit. Years ago, he represented serial killer Ted Bundy, notes AP.
He wouldn't divulge any information about the 38-year-old soldier, other than to say he's from the Tacoma area and sought out Browne via the military because of his reputation. “He’s from here, and he knows who I am,” Browne told the local newspaper, adding that the case is "more political than legal." One possible avenue of defense is the brain injury that the soldier suffered on a previous tour of duty. (Read more John Henry Browne stories.)
