Is this guy as deranged as his client? Well the fact he’s even representing him must speak to that. LOL! He really had the nerve to write to our President asking for mercy on Charles Manson, the famed cult leader responsible for many senseless deaths. Umm…I’m PRETTY sure President Obama has a million and one more important things to do then help you, sir. Read on for details.


Giovanni Di Stefano — known as “The Devil’s Advocate” — tells TMZ, he wants the Prez to set Manson free.

Di Stefano — who has also repped the likes of Saddam Hussein — says Manson was nothing more than a cult leader, not a murderer — Manson didn’t do the killing. Di Stefano says at worst, Manson is guilty of telling his followers to “do something witchy” — never specifying murder.

Di Stefano complains, “Manson has been made out in America to be the Satan of the criminal justice system. He does not deserve the title.”
