Former attorney Kristina M. Cardwell wept as she was sentenced Monday to 5½ years in prison for participating in a $1.3 million real estate fraud at the Norfolk law office of Troy Titus.
Cardwell, 38, told U.S. District Judge Raymond Jackson her 2½-year-old daughter was all she cared about as she apologized for her crimes, according to The Virginian-Pilot .
Cardwell admitted turning over loan money to Titus that was intended for the purchase of three homes. Titus awaits trial in November.
Both Cardwell and Titus have been disbarred.
