A Missouri man is calling on a higher power for his legal representation.
Richard John Adams requested Jesus Christ as his trial attorney during a hearing Wednesday on tampering charges.
Hmmm. Okay, but why not a regular attorney? I mean, surely there is one out there that is Christian?
Adams, who described himself as a patriot and a Christian, says lawyers are "devils" who are trying to undermine the Constitution.
Oh. Well this takes bashing lawyers to a whole new level.
Ozark County Circuit Judge John Moody told Adams the only person who can speak for him in the courtroom is a lawful attorney.
Adams is charged with tampering with a judge for hostile comments made during an earlier traffic case.
He faces a maximum of 14 years in prison if convicted of both counts.
Oh this guy will be tons of fun in jail. I've never been, but I can't imagine that it's a place that this guy will like.
