DETROIT (WWJ) – A Detroit defense attorney has been arrested and charged with perjury Monday at the Frank Murphy Hall of Justice.

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy calls the behavior of attorney David Dunn a “poison arrow to the heart of the criminal justice system.”

The 42-year old Dunn is charged with conspiring to commit perjury and encouraging a witness to lie in a murder case. Dunn was representing 22- year-old Andre Collins of Detroit, who is currently a defendant in an ongoing murder case.

Collins is also charged with conspiracy to commit perjury.

“The evidence will show that he has done this more than once,” said Worthy in a statement. “I cannot even begin to express how disappointed I am by his alleged actions.”

Dunn denies any wrongdoing.

Collins and Dunn were expected to be arraigned in 36th District Court on Tuesday.
