Shamed South Florida attorney Scott Rothstein has listed his luxury Manhattan condominium unit at One Beacon Court for $5.4 million, according to Curbed.

The ponzi scheme fraudster pleaded guilty to racketeering, money laundering and fraud in his $1.2 billion scheme January 2010. The listing, at 151 East 58th Street, bears no trace of criminal proceedings with no mention of restitution, bankruptcy or federal approval, Curbed reported. The empty lot opposite Rothstein’s Fort Lauderdale mansion, meanwhile, recently fetched $1.8 million at auction.

Rothstein’s second wife Kim Rothstein is also on the Beacon Court deed.They paid $5.9 million for the condo in 2008. The building was also home to another corrupt attorney Marc Dreier, sentenced to 20 years in federal prison, whose condo was auctioned for $8.2 million in 2009. [Curbed]
