Since the accused is both a medical doctor and a lawyer, he understands the medical and legal issues involved, and certainly could have plotted out everything as the prosecution alleges.

Proving it beyond reasonable doubt may be hard.

In any case, there is zero doubt in my mind who did what, just as with O.J. Simpson, and sometimes our legal system is unable to get a conviction.

Even if he gets away with this crime, he has already been convicted of a pretty long list of others, and no one can have any doubt about his overall moral standards and conduct. I mean, stealing a stepchild's identity for your mistress to defraud people is pretty low.

Good luck prosecutors, and jurors.

When I was growing up, it wasn't uncommon for parents to wish that their kids would become a doctor and a lawyer, this guy is both, amazing.

If what this article says is true, .. I wonder how it is that a persons conscience can become so jaded as this guy. He deserves to go down for what he has done.

@cjb - You said, "parents to wish that their kids would become a doctor and a lawyer, this guy is both, amazing."

Just like Ted Bundy

A Doctor's ego can be beyond what one can ever imagine.
Ask a nurse.

Oh, what a tangled web we weave! I'm thinking McNeil might get caught in his own web.

Egomania is not unique to physicians. Try looking at sports figures, Bernie Madoff, politicians, movie celebrities, and yes even nurses or residents of St. George. It's just more sad when someone sworn to heal the sick is involved.
