Paul Bernardo's former lawyer was acquitted of obstruction of justice over his handling of videotapes showing the rape and torture of Bernardo's victims. Justice Patrick Gravely said he had reasonable doubt that Ken Murray intended to obstruct justice in hanging on to the tapes. Murray took possession of the gruesome tapes, but waited 16 months before turning them over to prosecutors because he said he planned to disclose them at a preliminary hearing to discredit Bernardo's ex-wife Karla Homolka. Murray said he hoped the ruling in his case would help other lawyers.
