NEW YORK – Federal authorities say they've arrested a one-time attorney for a financial adviser to celebrity clients.
Attorney Jonathan Bristol was charged in an indictment unsealed in federal court in Manhattan with money laundering. The allegations are connected to the fraud committed by his former client, financial adviser Kenneth Starr.
Prosecutors say Bristol raided the accounts in January to pay $1 million to settle a claim by a disgruntled Starr client.
Starr pleaded guilty to fraud charges earlier this year. He admitted cheating wealthy and elderly clients out of tens of millions of dollars.
