Attorney Robert A. George found guilty in money laundering case
Robert A. George, a prominent attorney well known for his testy clashes with the government, was convicted in federal court in Boston Friday in a sweeping verdict that found he helped a client launder $200,000 in profits from crimes and pocketed $20,000 for his work. All along, the client had been cooperating with the US Drug Enforcement Administration. George, a 57-year-old father of three, appeared emotionless, staring ahead as the guilty verdicts were announced after only four hours of deliberation. Family members, who sat in support throughout the two-week trial, shook their heads in disbelief.
