Miami's Federal Jail Overrun With Strippers Posing As Paralegals, Lawyers Say
|Federal Bureau of Prisons|
|Lawyers claim that lax rules have let phony paralegals pamper their narco clients|
Among the offenses allegedly committed by so-called paralegals: smuggling in a Playboy, feeding alcohol to an inmate by slipping a straw through a grate, and sneaking in $3,000 inside a purse.
In a scene straight out of a porno, one woman was caught on video stripping for an inmate in the jail's Special Housing Unit, attorneys say. The stripper was banned from the FDC.
Female lawyers say the phony paralegals are an embarrassment.
"I find it offensive," says an attorney who asked to remain anonymous. "This is still kind of a male-dominated profession. We try to be taken seriously, but these women aren't helping."
Not every lawyer is up in arms over the FDC fiasco, however.
"If you want some good people-watching, try the FDC," attorney Marc Seitles says. "It certainly beats paying a cover and waiting on lines to get into LIV."
