Hotman was part of Schapelle Corby's legal team up until late January 2006 where Indonesian Supreme Court reinstated a 20 year sentence.
Hotman appeared on the Australian current affairs television show The 7:30 Report on the ABC in July 2005 defending his integrity, stating: "So I'm not Mr Clean, but for this case temporarily I am clean." and went on to say "There is no lawyer in the world is clean. All the lawyer usually hypocrisy help and I try to reduce my hypocrisy a little bit. If you keep saying Australian lawyer, American lawyer they are all clean, that's totally bullshit.
