Steven Rondos, a Brooklyn lawyer who admitted stealing US$4 million from the trust accounts of 23 disabled or incapacitated clients, was sentenced to 15 years in prison today in New York. Rondos was the court-appointed legal guardian in charge of supervising the guardianship accounts of clients who were incapacitated. He used some of the funds to buy and furnish a US$1.4 million luxurious home in Ridgewood, New Jersey, and buying a US$31,000 plasma TV for his home. Rondos was born in Canada and practiced law in New Jersey.
