We now know who Tressel's mystery attorney-friend is....

The mystery continues to be pieced together. The name redacted from the Jim Tressel e-mails has now been revealed.

The name is that of the attorney who appeared to represent the owner of the tattoo shop where Tressel's players were selling memorabilia. And the mystery attorney is: Christopher Cicero, a former Ohio State football player and based on the e-mails, which we reported on earlier today, it appears he was somewhat friendly with the now embattled Ohio State coach.

The reveal came courtesy of the Columbus Dispatch. The story is RIGHT HERE

The aforementioned Mr. Cicero appears to have a somewhat checkered history when it comes to legal ethics. His law license has been suspended at least once and has been accused of misconduct a couple of times as well.

It appears that you may be able to add breaching the attorney-client privilege and possibly aiding and abetting to that list. Ironically, Tressel claimed he was trying to protect that same privilege by not "Releasing" Cicero's name.

And the plot continues to thicken
