The Newark, New Jersey, law firm of Hunt, Hamlin & Ridley has tapped the legal services of Isaac Wright, Jr. — once wrongfully accused and convicted of being the mastermind behind one of the largest drug distribution networks in the New York/New Jersey areas — to act as co-counsel in the defense of Isaiah Bell.
Wright’s remarkable journey to gain his freedom and his legal talents are slated to be depicted in a TV series based upon his life and produced by 50 Cent. Today, they are slated to be on display in defense of Bell, the brother of an NFL player with the Detroit Lions, who is accused of first degree murder in the stabbing death of James Kargbo. As co-counsel, Wright’s representation of Bell will be backed by unique experiences no other attorney can lay claim to — an experience that began in the very same county and courthouse Wright will be representing Bell.
