Robert Durst parts ways with lead defense attorney
New York real estate heir Robert Durst recently parted ways with his lead defense attorney.
Dick Deguerin tells News12 that, as far as he knows, Durst does not currently have New York counsel.
The shakeup comes fresh off the news that Durst was transferred to a California state prison medical facility.
News 12 is told that the facility treats inmates with the most severe and long-term medical needs.
The move comes less than two weeks after Durst was hospitalized on a ventilator with COVID-19.
His diagnosis came just days after he was sentenced for the murder of his best friend.
There is no word now of how Durst will progress in his legal proceedings without New York counsel.
