HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A former death row inmate and accused pimp will act as his own lawyer in court.
The development in the case against Isaiah Mccoy came Friday after a judge approved his motion to act as his own lawyer.
Back in January, Mccoys public defender said there was a breakdown in the attorney-client relationship, McCoy then requested to represent himself.
An attorney will be assigned for Mccoy's backup counsel.
Federal investigators accused McCoy of coming to Hawaii to establish a major prostitution ring.
He's charged with seven counts of sex trafficking for allegedly forcing women into prostitution.
If convicted, Mccoy faces life in prison.
