Sheriff's deputies have arrested a San Pedro defense attorney involved in an alleged murder for hire scheme against his former law partner and a state bar prosecutor, authorities announced Friday. Barry Post, 47, was upset over a disciplinary investigation into his conduct and hired a San Bernardino County private investigator to find someone to kill the prosecuting attorney on the case, as well as his former law partner, said Sheriff's Det. Chris Elvert. The alleged plot didn't get very far.
