Sometimes, federal prosecutors don’t take no for an answer. But judges can be equally stubborn. Miami federal prosecutors last week resubmitted a plea agreement calling for disbarred Miami attorney Louis Robles to receive 10 years in prison and forfeit $1 million at sentencing.
In a rare move, the plea agreement requiring Robles to admit to two mail fraud counts in a 41-count indictment was rejected in May by U.S. District Judge Alan S. Gold of the Southern District of Florida. But the government forwarded the same agreement to the judge last week, this time including stories of Robles’ sick and dying victims and their relatives. Prosecutors said the victims cannot wait through a trial and possible appeal to get a share of the money they lost.
