Miami Class Action Attorney Held as Possible Flight Risk

Plaintiffs class action attorney Louis Robles is in jail pending acceptance of a plea agreement to charges that he stole over $13 million from asbestos clients because he may be a flight risk.  An article in the Daily Business Review (here) notes that Robles' $1 million bail has been revoked because his girlfriend told a probation officer that Robles had discussed with her obtaining false passports for himself and his grandson.  Perhaps more importantly, the government has been able to locate only $1 million, and the article reports concerns that Robles may have moved money off-shore.  As discussed in an earlier post (here), Robles had agreed to plead guilty to fraud charges and faces a ten-year prison term.  It looks like he may get an early jump on the sentence.
