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]
