Divorce Lawyer Narrowly Escapes Murder Plot

Divorce lawyers have to work with people from all walks of life. Sometimes this puts lawyers at risk. A lawyer in Indiana narrowly missed getting tangled in a murder plot thanks to the watchful eye of her husband.

According to the police, a mother and her son had planned to kill a divorce lawyer that was trying to seek money from the mother’s recently-divorced husband. The husband saw the pair sitting in a car outside of their home and called the police. Police found a gun and a syringe with what they believe was a lethal dose of anesthesia. They were arrested and posted $20,000 bail. Now they pair is on the run after failing to show up for their court date.

Thankfully, such cases are very rare. A much more common worry we experience is someone getting harmed trying to escape an abusive relationship through divorce. As you may have read in some of our previous stories, a partner may resort to criminal activity to prevent a divorce.
