Assistant U.S. public defender found slain in SW Portland home | Portland News – – OregonLive.com

An assistant federal public defender was found dead in her Southwest Portland home, the apparent victim of a homicide, Portland police said late Wednesday.

Nancy S. Bergeson, 57, a well-liked attorney, vigorously defended bank robbers, con men and drug dealers during about 18 years with the Federal Public Defender’s Office in Portland. She was found dead Tuesday, a day after she represented a man in a tax evasion conspiracy case in U.S. District Court here.

A friend who stopped by her home in the 4100 block of Southwest Hamilton Street about 3 p.m. Tuesday saw Bergeson lying on the floor and called 9-1-1.

"Vigorously defended bank robbers, con men and drug dealers," typical Oregonian trash-talk. Disgusting!
