Former Porn Lawyer Gets Prison for Mortgage Scam

Paul Nicoletti, former attorney for the litigious pornography company Malibu Media, is headed to prison for his role in a phony mortgage scheme. So reports Michigan’s The Oakland Press.

A Detroit federal judge sentenced Nicoletti to serve 70 months in federal custody and ordered him to pay $5.3 million in restitution, the U.S. Department of Justice announced.
