Racehorse Haynes

It’s possible that he’s not the greatest criminal-defense lawyer that ever lived. Clarence Darrow may wear that crown, or Earl Rogers, who represented Darrow when Darrow got in trouble in L.A. But Houston criminal-defense lawyer Richard “Racehorse” Haynes deserves honorable mention — at the very least — in that pantheon. And he’s still alive and kicking. Via Luke Gilman’s Blawgraphy comes this story from Austin, Texas TV station KVUE about Richard’s appearance in Williamson County on a sexual assault case.

Richard Haynes is 80 years old, he is still defending people, and he shows no sign of stopping. If you have a chance to watch him in action, take it.
