What an idiot.....“However, I said nothing in court because I was still convinced that I would receive house arrest,” Sutton said. He expects House Arrest with a Record like that. How dare he even think he is getting off with this. I hope and I know his new Trial will fetch himself an increase to the original sentence. That would look good on him for LYING about Miss Baker. How many homes and businesses did he disrupt. Miss Baker should have went into the Courts and dispute Sutton's allegations. She screwed up there but Sutton will get more than 30 months next round just for his cockiness. His GRIN is short lived.

This is the same idiot that stole a handcuff key and escaped custody. He also stole a pepper spray bottle from the guard. This is a misleading an unfair article to Ms. Baker. Buddy deserves to be locked up and should probably get more time as he obviously hasn't realized yet that what he did was wrong. You're not the victim here Mr. Sutton. Us tax payers and the people who wasted their time reading this article are. Do us a favor and lie in your cell and please shut up.

Ms. Baker was given the opportunity to address the Court of Appeal, and she declined the invitation. One must infer from that that the affidavit is true, and that she was too pre-occupied with her own personal issues to properly defend her client. Telling someone to plead guilty to something he denies committing is grossly unethical on her part.

He didn't deny doing it. Rather he was ticked off he didn't get the sentence his lawyer said he would. Maybe she was tricking him in to making a dumb choice because she knew he belongs in a cage. I know nothing of the circumstances, but all I was saying was this guy is a waste and that Ms. Baker's credibility as an educated person should not be damaged because of some guys opinion of what he got for prison time. He's a loser and as such needs to shut up.

Why would you settle for house arrest for a crime you didn't commit. He didn't deny it, but in my opinion admitted. Get you head out yer arse

This is a highly unbalanced piece of writing. This is poor editing on someone's part at the Telegram! There is not one comment or verification from Avril Baker! Seriously?!!

Earlier this year I also had a very brief association with Mrs. Baker. I was also given the "take the deal" story by her. I knew that I did not do the offense so I politely told her NO, she then informed me that would be my best chance. Needless to say I didn't take her advise and she recused herself from my case. I went to court and represented myself and won the case. Although is she a good lawyer, she tends to go for the plea out most of the time.

I however was not as fortunate and was dragged through the system for many years only to tell me at the end of the day that I must take the DEAL

Holy crap, talk about yer born loser !!!. The guy hires a lawyer to plead his case and his lawyer pressures him into pleading guilty. lol.

I was just wondering if the Law Society will be notified re the actions of this lawyer?

35 charges tells me he is a career criminal. He can't have that many charges and be innocent. Looks like another one making a joke of the system. I guess now we know what Baker thinks of the judges. Good luck on your next case.
- June 15, 2012 - 06:56
He had 35 charges pending??? He's scum! Of course he has to blame somebody else, Avril Baker will do! He needs 34 more people to blame for the other charges. Who cares if he got Federal time? He should get it!
- June 15, 2012 - 06:42
if 26 charges were withdrawn as part of a plea deal are those charges back on the table

I had dealings with Ms. Baker some years ago. She's a great lawyer if you can no other lawyer in the land to represent you.

This guy is a joke and a drain on the legal system and the tax payers by having legal aid represent him. Time for him to grow up and accept responsibility for his crimes.

A new trial will bring all the other charges back into play.
