Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS -

LOS AN­GE­LES — Lance Arm­strong has hired a crim­i­nal de­fense lawyer to help him in an in­ves­ti­ga­tion by fed­eral pros­e­cu­tors.

Bryan Daly, a white-col­lar de­fense at­tor­ney with Shep­pard Mullin Richter & Hampton LLP, con­firmed Wed­nes­day that he had been hired by Arm­strong. Daly said he had “no idea” yet what the govern­ment was look­ing into.

The New York Daily News re­ported last month, cit­ing uniden­ti­fied peo­ple, that the U.S. at­tor­ney’s of­fice in Los An­ge­les is as­sist­ing the Food and Drug Ad­min­is­tra­tion in an in­ves­ti­ga­tion of dop­ing al­le­ga­tions by for­mer Arm­strong team­mate Floyd Lan­dis.
