After resigning from the Monroe County Sheriff's Dept, and then a stint at Region's Bank, James Patrick Henry was hired by the Held Law Firm in Knoxville TN--where as of 2014 has been working as a law clerk...interestingly, there's a link on the Held Law Firm website on how to spot crooked attorneys, and how to avoid getting ripped off.
The State of Tennessee Court of Criminal Appeals ruled that the circumstances surrounding the 'cops playing lawyers' case were so shocking, that Judge James Curwood Witt called the detectives actions "egregious, illegal, and abhorrent...so egregious that it profoundly interfered with the defendant's right to counsel under the state and federal constitutions."
