The prosecution of Miami attorney Benedict P. Kuehne hasn't gone well for the government. In fact, some call it a disaster. Prosecutors charge that Kuehne funneled $5.2 million in drug proceeds to trafficker Fabio Ochoa's defense team, but David Markus, a representative of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, says the remaining counts are "hanging on by a thread." Markus says the legal theories that the government is proceeding on are "novel at best and realistically do not have the support in the law."
