Scam Promised Legal Help to Prisoners

A felon named William L. Daniel had a website advertising the law firm of T.A. Brockington & Associates, with 36 years of experience representing prisoners fighting to regain their freedom. According to the Florida attorney general's office, which has filed a consumer protection lawsuit against him, Mr. Daniel took payments (from $1800 to $5500) from at least three families, promising to get prisoners' sentences reduced or set aside. Bogus law firm's web site spelled trouble for desperate prison inmates, South Florida Sun-Sentinel, May 3, 2006.
