"Joseph is a loving and caring father," Murphy says. "And when the facts come out, we'll see that there's no child abuse in play here."
Due to tomorrow's hearing, Murphy is reticent to go into too much detail about the case against Lightfoot and Amber Wildenstein, who's represented by another attorney. But he does share his view that law enforcement may well have overstepped its bounds in this instance.
"It's unfortunate that the Denver Police Department feels the need to come after somebody who's not committing child abuse and is otherwise engaged in an activity that's constitutionally protected at the state level," he says.
