Providence in Rhode Island: lawyer walks into police station
According to a report in the ABA Journal, Anthony Chiofalo also handed in $150,000 in cash to return to his former employer, Japanese hydraulic crane manufacturer Tadano.
Mr Chiofalo’s lawyer, Houston-based defence specialist Paul Doyle, confirmed his client had turned himself in and said the 51-year-old ‘always wanted to co-operate, to make this right’, adding that ‘when his wife was charged, it shocked him, and that caused him to run.’
Mr Chiofalo and his wife were indicted last June for felony theft. They stand accused of conning Tadano out of millions since November 2010 by creating fake law firms that Mr Chiofalo would pay for fictitious legal work.
