The Detroit Free Press reports on Feiger’s legal team in this article.
Fieger has hired two nationally known criminal attorneys to defend him against charges that he and law partner Vernon (Ven) Johnson illegally contributed $127,000 to Democrat John Edwards’ failed 2004 presidential campaign.
The team is led by Wyoming criminal lawyer Gerry Spence, a 78-year-old author and legal commentator whose Web site boasts that he hasn’t lost a criminal case in more than five decades.
Spence’s cocounsel is David Nevin, 58, a Boise, Idaho, lawyer who was tapped this month to help defend Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the alleged mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Mohammed is being held at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, and faces the death penalty if convicted in an upcoming military trial.
