It has been almost 10 years since a beastly 120-pound dog named Bane fatally mauled lacrosse coach Diane Whipple in a Pacific Avenue apartment building while its owner, Marjorie Knoller, did not nearly enough to stop him (or so determined the jury). Knoller's attorney, Dennis Riordan, was in the Court of Appeals on McAllister this morning arguing legal technicalities involved in Knoller's second-degree murder conviction. Yet her co-defendant and husband Robert Noel was a no-show.
Where was he? Turns out after getting convicted of involuntary manslaughter and disbarred as an attorney, Noel now pursues a more rustic profession: Baking.
