Gosnell Surprises Lawyer By Pleading “Not Guilty” To Drug Charge

The Inquirer reports:

West Philadelphia abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell continued working from his own playbook Wednesday, rejecting for a second time a federal prosecutor’s plea agreement in a case charging him with selling prescriptions for dangerous narcotic drugs.

The plea would have landed him 20 years in prison, on top of the three life sentences he’s already serving. By rejecting the offer, after reviewing “meticulous notes written on graph paper,” he surprised not only court watchers, but his own lawyer Jack McMahon.

“I thought he would [plead guilty] today, but he said no,” McMahon said.

All of which means: Gosnell will be headed back to the courtroom come September 9th.
