Missouri Attorney Once Convicted of Murder Back in Practice

A Kansas City attorney whose conviction in the beating death of his law partner was overturned in 2006 can resume his practice, the Missouri Supreme Court ruled.

The court ordered the law license of Richard Buchli II to be reinstated, with certain conditions.
Buchli was convicted in 2002 of murder in the death of his law partner, Richard Armitage.

Prosecutors alleged that Buchli’s financial problems were the motivation behind the killing.

A judge overturned Buchli’s conviction in 2006, finding that evidence had been withheld from the defense during his trial. Prosecutors dismissed the case last year, after a judge in 2010 threw out all the state’s evidence.

    Judges are judged on a mere "appearance" of impropriety.Was this guy found innocent of a murder?

  2. Anonymous Says:

    This is very strange. He apparently admitted it?

  3. Brian Says:

    It scares me. If he was convicted of murder, he shouldn't be operating as a lawyer. If he didn't do it, then he should appeal and then if acquitted, then he could be a lawyer.
