A Former Diplomat's Stupid Son

The ABA Journal reports that Nigel Salmingo, the son of a former Philippine Consul General to Honolulu, embezzled $300,000 from a law firm in Honolulu.  His defense attorney said that Mr. Salmingo mistakenly believed that, as the son of a former diplomat, he had diplomatic immunity from arrest and prosecution. 

We don't think so. 

He pled guilty to 37 counts of first- and second-degree theft, forgery, and money laundering.  Click here to read more.

Hat tip to Martha Neil at the ABA Journal.
