UPDATE: 5/20/2014, 3:20 p.m.

The Boca Raton attorney who helped Scott Rothstein with a $1.2 billion Ponzi scheme has been sentenced to five years in prison.

A federal judge in Palm Beach County sentenced Christina Kitterman Tuesday.

Kitterman was convicted of three counts of wire fraud and could have faced up to 20 years for each conviction.

Kitterman so far is the only one of 20 people charged in the fraud case to go to trial.

Rothstein is serving 50 years after pleading guilty to the scam.

In related news, the Broward supervisor of elections announced Rothstein would be removed from voter rolls.

That came about after a county resident complained that the convicted criminal was still on the voter rolls four years after his sentencing.


Scott Rothstein is about to get tossed from Broward's voter rolls.

The convicted Ponzi schemer from Weston was reportedly still appearing as eligible on the rolls, despite his sentencing four years ago after he was convicted in the $1.2 billion scam.

A Broward resident noticed, and state officials are now taking care of removing the convicted criminal from the rolls.

Rothstein's associate Christina Kitterman is set to be sentenced Tuesday in federal court in West Palm Beach for her role in the Ponzi scheme.

She was convicted in February on three wire fraud counts, each of which carries a potential 20-year prison sentence.
