Seattle defense attorney John Henry Browne, who’s represented serial killer Ted Bundy and the “Barefoot Bandit,” is in Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, Monday for a meeting with Staff Sgt. Robert Bales, who’s likely to be charged this week over the alleged killing of 16 Afghan civilians near Kandahar last week. Browne’s meeting is described as a privileged visit, meaning it will be more private than others. Bales’s defense team issued a statement late Saturday, saying that “it is too early to determine what factors may have played into this incident and the defense team looks forward to reviewing the evidence.”
