A judge threw out the jail sentence for a prominent Texas Democratic Party donor and fundraiser convicted of posing as a lawyer, resentencing him Monday to 10 years probation.
Mauricio Celis, known for his fundraising for such high-profile Democrats as Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, raked in millions of dollars in attorneys’ fees as founder of CGT Law Group International, which actually provided services to law firms such as translators and transportation…
…Prosecution witnesses painted Celis as a hot-tempered playboy with a penchant for topless clubs who flashed an expired reserve deputy badge when confronted by police.
Celis also told CGT clients that he was an attorney in good standing and licensed in Mexico, but none of that was true.
Meanwhile, he used his firm’s jet and his connections to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for Democratic funds, including $100,000 from one event for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, and $119,500 to state candidates as well as the maximum $2,300 to Clinton when she ran against President Barack Obama in the Democratic primary in Texas.
