Attorney: Lopez confided under "attorney-client" rule
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- There's a new twist in San Francisco Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi's domestic violence case.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports the attorney for Mirkarimi's wife, Eliana Lopez, will now argue that Lopez confided in her neighbor only because she thought, Ivory Madison, was an attorney who could offer advice. Madison is the one who called police about the abuse accusations. But, Lopez's attorney says anything her client said should be barred as evidence under the attorney-client rule.
The neighbor, is not a licensed lawyer. However, her website biography says she "trained" as an attorney". Mirkarimi's trial is scheduled to begin this Friday.
