Unfortunately, lying about your biographical details is frowned upon by the justice system, so the "frickin’ crooks" (AKA Deutsche Bank brokers David Parse, Paul Daugerdas, Donna Guerin, and Denis Fields) Catherine Conrad was hoping to help put away have had their convictions overturned.
Catherine Conrad claimed to be a law-abiding housewife when she was actually a suspended lawyer and alcoholic who was once arrested for punching a cop and stealing a bag of shrimp from a convenience store while drunk, court papers state. Conrad, 45, also lied about her career-criminal husband and even her Bronx address — all in a successful attempt to serve on the blockbuster Manhattan federal court trial in 2011 that found former Deutsche Bank broker David Parse, 53, and three co-defendants guilty of what prosecutors called the largest criminal tax fraud in history. Her deception was exposed after she wrote a fawning letter to prosecutors cheering on the convictions. “[The defendants are] frickin’ crooks and they should be in jail and you know that,” Conrad said in a 2012 hearing after US Marshals had to arrest her to bring her to court. Monday’s federal appeals court ruling overturned Parse’s conviction...[Conrad] also hid the fact that her husband is a convicted felon whom she’s described as a “Mafia boss,” court papers state.
