I have just received this update from TJ Hart of The Sky 97.3 confirming the rumors that were circulating yesterday afternoon about Kim Picazio being out of the Haleigh Cummings case. Simon
97.3 The Sky learned Thursday afternoon that the attorneys for the biological parents of missing 5-year-old Haleigh Cummings of Satsuma may have been released.
Kim Picazio, the attorney representing Haleigh’s mother, Crystal Sheffield, on a pro-bono basis confirmed by telephone to 97.3 The Sky Thursday at 6:31 p.m. ET that she had filed the paperwork in court earlier that day for termination of representation.
Picazio chose not to go on the record when asked how this decision came about. However, Crystal Sheffield’s mother, Marie Griffis, claims Picazio was fired over alleged inside leaks in the investigation.
Apparently Ronald Cummings has released his attorneys as well as indicated in this written statement from the Law Office of Kimball and Snider:
This office has been successful in handling the DCF investigation and resolving family law issues between Ronald Cummings and Crystal Sheffield. We undertook this representation pro bono as a public service to not only Ronald Cummings, but to the citizens of Putnam County in the interest of clearing up these controversies. There are no pending legal matters involving Ronald Cummings. We are ending today our representation of Ronald Cummings on good terms. Our website, findhaleighnow.com will remain online but will not be updated.
It appears to be as much strange as it is ironic that both lawyers are out at the same time.
