Sweeten Sentenced

/ 26.Jan, 2012

Bonnie Sweeten, the “hoax mom” paralegal who is a poster child for the axiom that an attorney needs to know what is going on in his or her office, has been sentenced.  Ms. Sweeten has been sentenced to 8 years and 4 months in prison for wire fraud and identity theft.  Ms. Sweeten’s case is an important lesson in malpractice and professional liability avoidance.
