Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

Scott Rothstein, Ft. Lauderdale lawyer and a horrible, tacky, ridiculous shell of a man who's accused of running a ponnzi scheme that cost victims upwards of $1 billion was finally arrested today. He'll sit in jail until his trial, where he'll face charges of federal racketeering, money-laundering conspiracy, mail fraud and wire fraud.

Rothstein pleaded not guilty. 

Other arrests in the case may be forthcoming. 

The man lived a lavish lifestyle, and spent money on a golden toilet. Unfortunately, Rothstein will not face charges for pushing the limits of good taste.
