Three more prominent defense attorneys have been named as recipients of allegedly illicit proceeds from accused South Florida drug kingpins Willy Falcon and Sal Magluta.
In a pretrial detention hearing for yet another person indicted as a money launderer for the two men, assistant U.S. attorney Michael “Pat” Sullivan named Miami criminal defense attorneys Roy Black and Scott Srebnick, and Boston attorney Marty Weinberg as lawyers who received tainted money for legal fees. The three, all members of the Falcon/Magluta defense team, have not been charged with any wrongdoing. The revelations are the latest surprising twist in the government’s intense effort to keep Falcon and Magluta in prison for the rest of their lives. Prosecutors were badly stung by the men’s 1996 acquittal by a jury swayed by a corrupt foreman. The rogue juror was later convicted of taking a bribe to convince his colleagues to vote for acquittals.
