Court told Patricia Cornwell’s donations illegal

The former finance manager for best-selling author Patricia Cornwell told jurors in federal court in Boston on Monday that he had fudged her financial ­records to “mask” donations that she and her friends had made to political candidates including ­Hillary Rodham Clinton, in violation of campaign finance laws.

Evan Snapper, a former principal at Anchin, Block & Anchin LLP, ultimately pleaded guilty to the criminal violations in 2011 and is serving three years of probation, and his law license was suspended in Massachusetts.
