Bizarre plot to kidnap lawyer for ransom nets 20-year sentence for Illinois man

The person wired with explosives in that Discovery Channel show was blown up when the plot began to break down. Nash was taking a chance that his intended victim hadn't see the same show. Nash better hope he gets sent to a prison with a good cable package. Maybe he included that provision in whatever deal he made.

Obviously a person of questionable judgment if he really thought he was going to be able to extract money for a lawyer.

I don't believe thi! Another myth by the ABA that lawyers are rich.

Better robbing a politician or a banker. A lawyer? Please.
