A veteran Brooklyn criminal defense lawyer has found himself on the wrong side of the law - and he says it's because he defended a client too well.
Kenneth Perry, who has been representing felons of all stripes for more than two decades, was arrested June 16 in a Family Court waiting room after trying to advise a client who was being arrested of his constitutional rights.
Perry, 61, claims an NYPD detective from the 84th Precinct flipped out because he was trying to stop police from questioning the client.
According to the criminal complaint, Perry was standing between his client - who was being arrested for violating a girlfriend's order of protection - and the detectives when he was ordered to move aside. He refused and pushed the detective, the complaint states.
Perry said he never pushed the detective and insists that the courthouse surveillance tape is going to prove him right.
"I'm looking forward to vindicating myself before a jury as I didn't do anything criminal," Perry told the Daily News.
Instead of automatically taking the attorneys side of the story lets wait til the videotape evidence he says exist shows what really happened.
