Attorney Shannon Smith Had Weight Loss of 100lbs Due to Illness!


Attorney Shannon Smith has had dramatic weight loss since 2019. – Shannon Smith, the defense attorney of Jennifer Crumbley, has undergone a drastic weight loss as noted by people. Everybody knows Smith from the time she represented pedophile Olympics gymnastics Larry Nassar in 2018. She used to be quite large back. She’s considerably slimmed down since then. Apparently, attorney Shannon Smith had a weight loss of about 100 pounds after she got surgery for esophageal stricture. 

Shannon Smith who is currently representing Jennifer Crumbley, the mother of the Oxford shooter Ethan Crumbley, and defending her against four counts of involuntary manslaughter in a recently held trial, has sort of turned the trial into a farce and courtroom into a circus (with her as the clown) with her unprofessionalism, incompetence, and bizarre antics. People are bewildered at her defense of her client because she’s making her client look worse than before, and, to them, it’s looking more and more like she’s secretly on the prosecutor’s side.

Anyway, numerous clips of Shannon Smith being shamefully and unprofessionally unserious in the court such as cracking jokes, sobbing, fixing her makeup while the judge is addressing her, and flipping off the audience, are going around on social media. It would have been funny if it was a sitcom and even in the sitcom, it didn’t pertain to a mass school shooting and she hadn’t been notorious for defending the ‘indefensible’ aka abusers. She is said to be a joke of an attorney and that joke of an attorney has sparked weight loss speculations. So, in this article, we will be talking about that!

Attorney Shannon Smith’s Weight Loss: She Looks Much Thinner Than When She Represented Nassar!

So, Smith is currently serving Jennifer Crumbley – mother of Ethan Crumbley who committed a mass shooting in Oxford High School in 2021 – as a defense attorney and defending her against the charges of four counts of involuntary manslaughter, and not doing a very good job at it. She just doesn’t pick the right client so, it does not really go well for her. I mean, she chose to represent the disgraced pedophile Olympic Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar in 2018 and it should tell you all about her. Oh, and yeah, Shannon Smith’s the same person who represented Nassar. She just had a weight loss since then and that’s why she looks different.

It took a long time for people to figure out that the lawyer representing Jennifer Crumbley is the same attorney who defended Larry Nassar because of the difference in her appearance and physicality. Shannon looks nothing like she did back in 2018 and people only pieced together the connection between these trials (her as the defense lawyer) because of her name. They remembered her name in connection to the infamous Nassar trial and that’s how they came to know that it was the same person. Because of Shannon Smith’s weight loss, they hadn’t been able to place her.

A Redditor commented what everybody was thinking in a thread about the trial,

She’s the same lawyer?? Am I reading this right? She looks nothing like the woman from the case with Nassar.

How Did Attorney Shannon Smith Have Weight Loss?

Smith was quite large when she was representing Nassar in 2018. I wouldn’t go as far as to say that she was obese but she was a huge woman. But that’s not the case anymore. She’s lost a ton of weight since then. And that has made all the difference. She’s much slimmer now and people can’t help talking and speculating about the drastic weight loss that the infamous attorney has had. There was an abundance of people who thought that Shannon Smith was on Ozempic but as it turned out, she had some sort of sickness which resulted in her losing weight.

As one pointed out in a Reddit thread,

She lost the weight after she developed an esophagus stricture. She has a stent in her esophagus. This is why she needed soup for lunch.

However, not everyone believed that. A lot of people seemed to think that she was lying about the illness being the cause of her weight loss and just using it as a cover for the bypass surgery she got.

Haha… yeah I’m sure she’s been “sick”. More than likely she took her Nassar money and had gastric bypass.

On her website, there is a mention of attorney Shannon Smith’s illness that caused her to lose weight.

The turning point came in 2019, when Smith developed an esophageal stricture, which would take a full year and multiple surgeries to abate. During this period, she visited the hospital 24 times and derived the bulk of her nourishment from an IV. When the ordeal had finally passed, Smith was left frail and malnourished, about a hundred pounds lighter, and tasked with rebuilding her health. 

However, not a lot of people trust what’s on there because Shannon Smith’s morality and integrity have been deemed questionable at best, and problematic at worst. They would not put her above lying about the weight loss.
