Emmett Corrigan, a Boise Idaho Criminal Defense Lawyer, was murdered this weekend.
Rumors are already swirling around what happened. I do not want to address those rumors on my website. I just want to send out my condolences to his family and friends who will be missing him.
I knew Emmett Corrigan. Emmett and I were both at similar points in our lives. We both were married and had children, both members of the LDS church, both had graduated with Bachelors Degrees in Philosophy, both graduated with a Juris Doctorate Degree, both had gone out on our own as owners of a law firm, and both practiced criminal defense law. We had been exchanging emails, and would speak to one another in Court while waiting to speak to prosecutors.
It saddens me deeply to hear that he has passed. His family is in our hearts and prayers.
