Two years has passed since the bitter legal battle started between Bubba the love sponge (Clem) and Todd MJ Schmidt. In the initial lawsuit, Schmidt had accused Bubba of defamation but the jury sided with Bubba and found him not guilty of his charges. Bubba and his attorneys were ecstatic after the legal victory and celebrated as the verdict was read. Both Bubba and Schmidt are Radio Jockeys.
As per WFLA, in connection with the same case, Bubba’s attorneys now find themselves in bit of a legal predicament. They have been accused of fixing a DUI. Reportedly, Bubba’s defense attorneys, Stephen Diaco, Robert Adams, and Adam Filthaut have been accused of rigging a DUI arrest.
It is alleged that they persuaded one of their paralegals to drink with Schmidt’s lawyer at a bar named Malio’s. Campbell (Schmidt’s lawyer) then attempted to drive home, but Bubba’s attorneys called the cops on him as soon as he got into his car and drove away. The police busted Campbell and charged him with a DUI.

Bubba’s lawyers have since been declared guilty and attempted to enter a plea deal with the prosecuting attorney. Attorney Diaco offered to give up his law license in exchange to save the firm and the other two attorneys involved both offered to serve 91-day suspensions each, but the Pinellas County Court judge did not agree to the terms and said that these measures were too lenient for their crimes and that they will need to face stricter penalties.
Too bad they could not just delete the emails like the lawyer Hillary Clinton did.
