Brooklyn lawyer Steven T. Rondos has been charged with stealing more than $4 million from guardianship bank accounts he supervised for incapacitated elderly people and children. A court spokesman acknowledged that some of the thefts "should have been caught earlier" and reported that "a handful" of examiners assigned to monitor guardians' accounts had been asked to resign. The DA's office says Rondos used a large part of the money for a home mortgage and improvements, including kitchen renovations and a home theater.
