FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - The exotic cars owned by a high-profile South Florida lawyer accused of concocting a Ponzi scheme are on display for potential bidders in a mult-million-dollar government auction.
Ten of Scott Rothstein's cars went on display Monday outside a Miami warehouse. They will go on auction June 3 at the Broward County Convention Center. Among the cars up for sale were a Bugatti, a Lamborghini, a 2009 white Bentley and a 1967 red convertible Corvette Stingray.
The cars were forfeited to the government under an agreement in which the attorney pleaded guilty to running a billion-dollar Ponzi scheme out of his Fort Lauderdale law office. He faces up to 100 years in prison at a June 9 sentencing.
