Jonathon Bristol, a formal attorney for a financial adviser to celebrity clients, was arrested for charges involving money-laundering. The Associated Press reported a lawsuit against Bristol was filed in Manhattan's federal court and alleged he helped cover up Kenneth Starr's Ponzi-like scams.
Kenneth Starr, who had been a one-time advisor for celebrities like Wesley Snipes and Sylvester Stallone, supposedly embezzled investor money from his clients. The suit claimed Jonathon Bristol helped hide the stolen money and placed them in secret escrow accounts. Bristol pleaded not guilty to the charges held against him and was released on a $1 million bail bond. He may face a maximum of 20 years behind bars if found guilty.
