A Roslyn, N.Y., lawyer who claims that his experience as an adopted child inspired him to help would-be parents has been indicted in Nassau County, N.Y., on charges that he stole more than $300,000 from couples looking to adopt by promising them children who “did not exist.” Kevin Cohen, 41, was indicted Monday on 69 counts, including one of second-degree grand larceny, 11 of third-degree grand larceny, and 10 of third-degree forgery.
He faces up to 15 years in prison if convicted of the top count.
