Rothstein’s Right-hand Gets Maximum Sentence

U.S. District Judge sentenced Debra Villegas, Scott Rothstein’s law partner to the maximum sentence on Friday – 10 years. Her humble beginnings marred by sexual abuse and limited education were the backdrop to her rise to Rothstein’s COO. This mother of four worked her way from legal assistant to paralegal to lawyer in charge of the 70 – lawyer Rothstein Rosenfeld Adler, a Ft. Lauderdale law firm. Her continued efforts to cooperate with authorities could result in a reduction of her sentence in the future.
