Lawyer Sentenced to 5 Years

White Plains [NY] � A Hudson Valley defense lawyer who used to show up for court with "AQUITAL" on his car's plates got the maximum prison sentence yesterday for trying to convince a witness to lie about a Newburgh drug case.

Donald Roth, 36, of Poughkeepsie, was sentenced to five years in federal prison and fined $10,000 by U.S. District Judge Stephen C. Robinson, who said Roth's conduct undercut the foundations of the criminal justice system.
