The Law Society of Upper Canada Wednesday dropped its charge of professional misconduct against former Paul Bernardo lawyer, Ken Murray.
Murray was charged for concealing videotapes for 17 months that showed Bernardo and his ex-wife Karla Homolka torturing their victims.
"I'm relieved and there's still an underlying anger, because I was doing my job for my client, doing what I was trained to do, sworn to do, and for that I was vilified," Murray said.
Murray said he held on to the tapes because he thought they would help him defend Bernardo by discrediting Karla Homolka during her testimony.
But his dilemma was that the tapes also helped the prosecution. There were no rules for lawyers in his ethical predicament.
The Law Society announced a special committee to set such guidelines.
