FILE - In this May 29, 2003, file photo, attorney Stanley Cohen, center, speaks to reporters on the steps of the Federal Courthouse in Portland, Oregon after his client, Mohamed Kariye, who pleaded guilty to minor fraud charges on March 3, received a sentence of five years probation. It can be an uncomfortable life for any defense attorney representing unpopular clients, but lawyers who agree to speak on behalf of people accused of plotting to kill Americans in terrorist attacks walk difficult road. “You get stigmatized. Folks avoid you. Cohen says, "You get ostracized. It’s terrible for a mate to see terrible publicity, to see you vilified, to avoid social settings because you know it will lead to confrontations.” (AP Photo/Greg Wahl-Stephens, File)
