A Pittsburgh attorney claimed he would be put to death by his wife if he missed the birth of their daughter.

Summary: A Pittsburgh attorney claimed he would be put to death by his wife if he missed the birth of their daughter.

Some attorneys may be guilty of blowing off court once in a while, but Marc Daffner, an attorney from Pittsburgh, put in a request for a continuance on Thursday that could not be denied.

Last year, a prosecutor claimed she was harassed when she requested a postponement due to her high-risk pregnancy.

According to TribLive.com, Daffner requested a postponement of his client’s preliminary hearing Thursday morning, which was to be held at the Pittsburgh City Court. The request read, “Defense counsel’s wife went into labor at approximately 11:15 a.m. today, and defense counsel will be killed by his wife if he does not get to the hospital immediately.”

Randi, Daffner’s wife, was at a doctor’s appointment Thursday morning when she was informed it was time to deliver. Randi was taken to the hospital immediately.

Daffner commented, “They say you need to be truthful to the court. I didn’t have a legal reason for the continuance, but that was the truth. I got a new date, and the DA signed off on it.”

Do you think a judge would ever deny such a request?

Judge Jeffrey A. Manning said he “could not imagine” a judge not granting a continuance if an attorney’s wife was about to give birth. “It’s a significant emergency,” he remarked.

Last year, a judge forced an attorney to bring her newborn to court, and taunted her during the hearing.

Loti Mbewe was supposed to have his preliminary hearing for his charge of receiving stolen property. Unfortunately for him, he will remain in Allegheny County Jail until the rescheduled date of September 2 if he cannot post bail.

Brynn Daffner was welcomed to the family at 12:57 a.m. Friday morning, at a healthy 7 pounds and 9 ounces.
