Lawyer quits.

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Celebrity lawyer Alexis Kougias yes­ter­day re­signed as lead coun­sel for Epaminon­das Korkoneas, the po­lice of­fi­cer found guilty of killing 15-year-old Alexis Grig­oropou­los in the cen­tral Athens neigh­bor­hood of Exarchia in De­cem­ber 2008, an in­ci­dent that sparked wide­spread ri­ots. Kougias said that he de­cided to drop his client after Korkoneas ap­peared un­re­pen­tant about his ac­tions dur­ing a court hear­ing last month, say­ing “there is no way he would apol­o­gize for any 15-year-old.” Korkoneas was sen­tenced to life in prison in 2010 and has been ap­peal­ing the de­ci­sion ever since.
