Francis Lee Bailey Jr., commonly referred to as F. Lee Bailey, is an American former attorney. For most of his career, he was licensed in Massachusetts and Florida. He was a criminal defense attorney who served as the lawyer in the re-trial of osteopathic physician Sam Sheppard. He defended Albert DeSalvo who was in jail for the "Green Man" sexual assaults; he confessed his guilt in the "Boston Strangler" murders to Bailey. He was also the supervisory attorney over attorney Mark J. Kadish in the court martial of Captain Ernest Medina for the My Lai Massacre. Patty Hearst, a newspaper heiress who had committed armed bank robberies after being kidnapped by the Symbionese Liberation Army (SLA), was one of Bailey's defeats, and was one of the lawyers for the defense in the O. J. Simpson murder case. He was disbarred in Massachusetts and Florida for misconduct while defending his client Claude DuBoc.
