NY Lawyer Accused of Stealing $266,000 From Client
New York Lawyer - February 14, 2008
By Daniel Wise - New York Law Journal

A Westchester attorney was arraigned yesterday on a charge he stole nearly $266,000 from a client to cover personal debts and funds owed to others.

The lawyer, Roger Cohen, 69, pleaded not guilty to one count of third-degree grand larceny and was released on $250,000 bail, according to the Westchester County District Attorney's Office.

Mr. Cohen was accused of taking more than $294,000 from the proceeds of a real estate sale for his client, who owned a real estate investment company. The proceeds were supposed to have been placed in an Internal Revenue Services account to be established for the client, whose name was not released.

When the client demanded the money's return, Mr. Cohen refunded only $28,671, according to prosecutors.

This guy should be disbarred for only stealing $200G. The real lawyers and judges in Westchester steal a lot more; I bet they're embarrassed over this lightweight.

Cohen is small potatoes compared to the meat eaters in White Plains
