There are few people in this world more despicable than child molesters.' I never dreamed that I would ever represent someone accused of such a heinous act.2 Like most lawyers, I went to law school to "save the world," or at least to try to make it a better place. But there really aren't many "save the world" cases out there, and they're usually pro bono. As a relatively young, debt laden attorney, I quickly realized that my chances of getting a "save the world" case were slim to none. That didn't mean I had to accept an accused child molester as a client, but frankly, I needed the money. I agreed to represent him.
