It’s a sad story well-known to the legal profession — a law office victimized by a dishonest staffer.
In this South Carolina case, it was two separate law firms who had to scramble to make things right after Caroline Keys pocketed money by altering closing documents. As reported by The Sun News, one of the victimized lawyers testified, “This will continue again and again. She’s now in a small town in Virginia, and she’s going to prey on a small law firm there.” Not to worry right now, however. The South Carolina judge gave Keys three years to serve.
