Conflict of interest in arson case?

October 24, 2005

Albany - Lawyers with the US Attorney's Office filed a motion Monday on conflict of interest in the case of W. Dexter Harrison.

He's accused of hiring Grady County farmer Marty Harrell to burn down the Ramada in Donalsonville in 2002 so he could collect the insurance money.

The motion claims Marty Harrell contacted Jerry Brimberry's law firm to seek counsel. Brimberry now represents Harrison, but did not take Harrell's case.

The motion for conflict of interest will be argued tomorrow in Federal court in Thomasville.
