A lawyer sent “at least 50” x-rated pictures to a violent prisoner behind bars for a meat cleaver attack, after defending him in court.
Amy Spencer, 39, sent the sexual shots of herself to a mobile phone in Glasgow’s Low Moss jail where Grant McNamara is serving a nearly five-year sentence.
The images were discovered by prison staff who reported the matter to the solicitors’ governing body, the Law Society of Scotland.
A prison insider said they are “appalled that she is still allowed to work,” the Daily Record reported.
As reported in the Paisley Daily Express, it’s understood Paisley solicitor Ms Spencer parted ways with Renfrewshire law firm Tod and Mitchell when the complaints came to light.
A prison insider said: “She was caught sending at least 50 naked photographs of herself to Grant McNamara.
“The photographs were seized by prison staff, who recognised her from them.
“She also visited him for long periods of time.”
The source added: “I am appalled that she is still allowed to work.
“If a male lawyer was sending pictures of his penis to a vulnerable female prisoner ten years his junior, he would probably have been arrested by now.
“But nothing seems to have happened to her, despite the prison service advising the Law Society.”
Dangerous McNamara, 28, was jailed for four years and nine months at Paisley Sheriff Court in July, over the blade attack which left victim, Dale Mitchell, scarred for life.
The thug had been released from jail for an axe attack on a taxi driver, when he butchered Mitchell in October 2020 after a row about Facebook posts.
Ms Spencer, a Glasgow University law graduate and a former prosecutor, set up her own business in September.
She declined to comment about the photos when approached by the Express.
The Law Society of Scotland also refused to comment on whether Ms Spencer is being investigated, saying: “The Law Society of Scotland cannot confirm or deny complaints cases.
“As the professional body for Scottish solicitors, we take our regulatory duties very seriously to ensure that people have confidence in the legal profession.
“In any case where we have reason to believe that one of our members has not met the high professional standards expected of them, we will take action.”
The Scottish Prison Service said it was unable to comment on the matter.
