R.I. men plead guilty to cheating the terminally ill

PROVIDENCE — Two men accused of stealing the identities of terminally ill people to reap $30 million from insurance companies and brokerage houses pleaded guilty Monday, several days into their trial, and face prison sentences of up to 10 years each.

Estate planning lawyer and philanthropist Joseph Caramadre, 50, and his former employee ­Raymour Radhakrishnan, 28, each entered guilty pleas in US District Court in Providence to single counts of wire fraud and conspiracy, ending the trial that began last week and that had been expected to last up to three months. Testimony was to resume Monday.
