Prison Consultant Convicted of Impersonating Lawyer
Howard Kieffer, the post-conviction consultant who misrepresented himself as an attorney and defended clients in numerous federal courts was convicted at his first trial yesterday in North Dakota. He faces up to 25 years in jail. The Indictment is here (pdf).
It's hard to find a balanced article on Howard, whom many of us around the country have encountered at legal seminars or through his Bureau of Prisons Listserv, but this recent article in the ABA Journal, Catch Me If You Can is one.
I don't recall ever meeting Howard in person, but he's commented on TalkLeft, sent some e-mails over the years and I thought his BOP List-Serv was helpful.
The Judge has continued Howard's bond pending sentencing with a requirement of home detention. He still has criminal charges pending in other jurisdictions.
