Defense Team

A woman accused in the Abu Ghraib prison abuse scandal is getting some help from right here in the state.

Private First Class Lynndie England will be represented by a team of Denver-area lawyers.

England was caught in pictures where she mockingly points at the genitals of nude Iraqi prisoners. She's also in another photo where she clutches a leash wrapped around the neck of another nude prisoner.

The Denver lawyers do have some experience in military law. They say England is being scapegoated by the military and Washington.
