Prosecutors: Lawyer for Hanukkah stabbing suspect needs to be removedPosted: Updated:
Prosecutors are looking to remove the lawyer representing Hanukkah stabbing suspect Grafton Thomas, arguing he is a witness in the case.
Rockland County District Attorney Thomas Walsh is pushing for Attorney Michael Sussman to be disqualified from representing Thomas.
Walsh claims Sussman is a material witness after he searched a home Thomas may have lived in a few years ago and removed evidence.
Sussman says he's very flattered that Walsh has a high regard for him, but he expects to continue on the case.
Thomas has pleaded not guilty to multiple state charges including attempted murder.
