Cordell & Cordell co-founder Joseph Cordell appeared on Yahoo Sports Radio Network to discuss disgraced football coach Bobby Petrino’s case and how marital misconduct impacts divorce for men.
Petrino, a married father of four children, was fired as head football coach at the University of Arkansas after he covered up he was having an affair with Jessica Dorell, a 25-year-old Arkansas athletic department employee whom he hired. Their affair was revealed after Petrino and Dorrell were involved in a motorcycle accident.
“Whenever you have misconduct like this it has effects that ramify throughout the entire case,” Cordell told host Craig Shemon. “There is potential civil liability of which a judgment could affect marital assets. Dissipating assets, such as giving $20,000 to his girlfriend as has been reported, is also frowned upon by family law judges.”
