More Lawyers Heading to Jail

Maybe it is just that working on this blog has caused me to pay more attention to convictions, sentencings, etc.,  but does it seem that more lawyers are getting sent to jail?  Here are two more who will enjoy time in FCI's:

(1) Stephen Alexander, an attorney and former major of Azusa, CA, was convicted of filing a false tax return for failing to report $200,000 of income (USAO press release here).

(2) Robert Claire of Boca Raton, FL, was sentenced to a 36-month term of imprisonment for embezzling $1.65 million from the estate of a client to prop up a company he operated, which of course eventually collapsed (USAO press release here).
