Rickards as a lawyer

The HoS has a copy of the letter wrote to the Law Society about why should not be admitted to the bar. She says:

She also wrote it was “absolutely shameful” that Rickards publicly supported co-accused Brad Shipton and Bob Schollum immediately after the trio were acquitted and criticised the police.

“For this man to stand on the steps of the Auckland High Court and publicly announce that ‘my good mates Shipton and Schollum should not be in jail, they are good men’ is absolutely shameful,” wrote Nicholas.

I would have thought the ability to get up and proclaim that guilty men were innocent, is a pre-requisite for being a lawyer!
