    MIAMI, FL – November 8, 2019 – GrayRobinson's Miami law firm office white collar criminal defense attorney Brian Bieber, shareholder, was quoted in the Law360 article, “Ex-UN Diplomat Spared Prison For Taking $1.5M In Bribes.”

    The article mentions how a Manhattan federal judge sentenced a former United Nations diplomat, Francis Lorenzo, to time served and community service after he pled guilty to a bribery scheme involving top officials and millions of dollars. U.S. District Judge Vernon S. Broderick ruled that 20 days in jail was sufficient for Lorenzo, who served as a key government witness in the corruption trial of Chinese real estate billionaire Ng Lap Seng. This ruling is a dramatic departure from the sentencing guidelines of nine to eleven years.

    Bieber, Lorenzo’s attorney, reiterated that his client “is extremely remorseful for his conduct, which the judge recognized does not represent who Francis Lorenzo is as a human being.” Read the full article here.
