The "Dexter" Defense

Lewis Unglesby, the defense attorney for a seventeen year old Louisiana man accused of murder, says viewings of the Showtime series "Dexter" influenced his client. Police seized DVDs of the show at the defendant's home. Mr. Unglesby entered a "not guilty by reason of insanity" plea for his client in early July. More here from the Baton Rouge Advocate.

The problem? Dexter is a serial killer who eliminates other serial killers. Mr. Unglesby's client is accused of murdering an eight-year-old.
