To: Common Sense 101
In 1770, John Adams served as the defendants' lawyer in the Boston Massacre case. That is, he defended in court the five British soldiers accused of shooting into a crowd and killing several people.
Adams must have been a very good lawyer: his clients were found not guilty.
I vaguely remember reading something about that fact, but I’m curious... in Adams case, did the defendents already confess to the crime, plead guilty, and subsequently ask for their sentences to be carried out?
