NY Post: Tax Lawyer "Skunk" v. "Skank"

CollitonWe previously have blogged the sordid tale of James Colliton, the 42-year old former Cravath tax lawyer and married father of five who is in jail on teenage rape and prostitution charges.  The New York Post adds a new chapter today with the article Perv-Case Skunk vs. "Skank":

The Manhattan lawyer accused of raping two teen sisters who were being pimped by their own mother told his side of the story yesterday, when his new defense attorney called the two young victims "perjurers" - and the oldest one a "skank."

"My client made $500,000 a year," the defense lawyer, Howard Greenberg, said after a Manhattan Supreme Court appearance for James Colliton, who is being held without bail. Colliton was a tax attorney for Cravath, Swaine and Moore, a top Midtown law firm.

"He had the wherewithal to pay for any piece of tuchus on the planet," Greenberg continued. "And he paid that skank?"

Class act, that fella. And that's a DEFENSE? He'd better get used to wide stripes, it seems.
