Lewd act blows lawyer’s career

Lewd act blows lawyer’s career

What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas ... unless it happens in a jail’s visiting room that has CCTV.

That is what Nevada-based lawyer Curtis Cannon discovered to his cost after he was arrested for having sexual contact with a client who was incarcerated at Clark County Detention Centre (CCDC).

The camera caught Cannon, 58, having oral sex performed on him by inmate Crystal Wallis during a contact visit. Folklaw feels sorry for the cop who had to review that tape...

At one point during the video Cannon is also seen giving Wallis a high five. What a gent.

Wallis admitted to the liaison when questioned and revealed she had also kissed Cannon once before during a previous visit.

However, when the cops told Cannon they had a video recording of his visit with Wallis, he admitted what had taken place.

Cannon and Wallis were both charged with voluntary sexual conduct between a prisoner and another person.

After being charged, Cannon was booked into the CCDC.

Folklaw presumes he was put in solitary confinement...
