Does he have a mansion? A Maryland mansion? Does he plan on touring anytime soon?

I knew it would be Montgomery county.

Prosecutors said Robbins lived the high life for six years on the woman's money, moving from a modest townhouse into a 6,600-square-foot house on 2.5 acres in Potomac, buying furniture, computers, artwork and watches

1.8 million is a lot of money - no doubt.  But it's not mansion in prime real estate with money leftover to buy lots of other stuff money.  Is it?

1.8 doesn't get you much in Montgomery county if you're also buying all that other stuff.  It's actually not a lot of money.

1.8 million?  I could swindle that in one PPE "loan".

Anyone interested in getting in on the ground floor of the Biden-net?  It's like the internet but it doesn't have any reference to a certain person and NeoCon sites are told to "Shut up, man."

It runs completely from Hunter Laptop #236 which is safely in a computer repair shoppe (fancy, no?) in Ukraine.

Unless that "modest townhouse" you are selling is a brownstone in DC.

Biden derangement syndrome is so sad to see in the elderly.

On Monday, Montgomery County judge sentenced Jonathan Robbins to 40 years in prison - with all but 12 years suspended -

So sentenced to 40 but he only has to do 12?  And he shows no remorse and prosecutors wanted at least 20 years?  And if they do good conduct, he can be out in 6.  Gee, any time served?

At least have the decency to start an Evangelical church and get the old lady with dementia to give the money to it. Then, the church buys the minister a nice car and a new home.

Presumably he has the ability to pay back all of what he stole, hence the upcoming restitution hearing. Six years in prison, on top of almost certainly being permanently disbarred from the practice of law, is not exactly a slap on the wrist.

Anybody remember that story from several years ago about an undercover cop who saw an opportunity, struck up a relationship with a guy to make bets on sporting events (these details are close enough as I remember them...) and over time got the guy to bet more and more, until he reached an amount that made the bet a felony...at which point the cop got a no-knock warrant and raided the guys house and presumably had him tossed in prison? Anyone know how that turned out?

Yes but he has 28 years hanging over his head for the rest of his life.

I would kill to have this be the biggest problem in my life.

Fark, wrong thread. Lol.

And likely a complete loss of any ability to work in his field. The rest of that will be on probation so if he sneezes, he gets put back in time out.

Personally, I'd love to give this guy the "Vlad the Impaler" treatment for what he did, but here we are.

I think he should be required to give everything he currently owns to the daughter.  Then he should be required to pay her the total $1.8 million from prison labor earnings.  80 hours a week, $1.00/hour would only take him approximately 432 years.  Then let him out.

If you want to get away with swindling millions, you have to be rich first.

That's the biggly-est theft of money I've seen from senior citizens since the Stop the Steal fundraising campaigns

Probably more like what he was already making as a lawyer + the stealing added up to that possibility.  Probably barely
