If Richard Rodriguez’s attorney Nick Pacheco gets his way, his client will have a full makeover—including a sweet ‘Magnum, P.I.’ mustache—for trial.

Nick Pacheco believes Richard Rodriguez’s gang tattoos on his face and neck will work against him at trial, and he’s photoshopped an image of his client in a suit with a mustache in an effort to persuade him to adopt the look.
