What has ended his reign of legal terror is getting caught for alleged forgery and other charges. Almost-lawyer, David E. Scher, had doctored a verdict slip from a conviction for stealing a laptop during his last year at Suffolk University Law School. Because of that conviction he did not receive his JD.
Most of lawsuits he lost. But, being involved in a lawsuit wears the defendants down. It also costs them legal expenses. Here are the details provided by Nestor Ramos at the Boston Globe.
In addition to the legal sector, Scher caused havoc in real estate. For a while he was a real estate broker and a shady one. For example, he would pocket the usual funds put down by someone to rent an apartment. However, somehow he was recognized by the National Association of Realtors' publication as among top realtors under the age of 30.
If he is convicted, the pre-sentencing report should turn up interesting information about how his mind works and what are his values. He faces up to 20 years in state prison.
Yes, the legal system allowed him to play games. And he also was able to get into the real estate industry. That is very scary.
