Scott Rothstein's right-hand charged

Chief operating officer Debra Villegas was charged Tuesday with conspiring to launder money from his massive investment racket (via Miami Herald). Here's the indictment which got assigned to Judge Zloch.

UPDATE -- an astute reader points out that it's an information, not an indictment, and that it says it will take the parties zero days to try the case. Looks like Ms. Villegas has worked out a deal to plead and cooperate...

Dear Mr. Markus,

I reviewed the charging document. It is an information, not an indictment. Doe that mean anything? Just wondering.

Dear mr. markus:

is she represented by a trial attorney, or by a plea lawyer?

I've tried plenty of cases in zero days. I've tried plenty of cases before zeros, but that's a different story altogether.

Hey- did you win some award or something? No one has covered it.
