Villegas: "I Have No Comment to the Media Whatsoever"
Just got hold of Debra Villegas, the chief operating officer of Rothstein Rosenfeldt Adler, who Scott Rothstein claimed handled his financial affairs. Earlier today I wondered aloud whether Villegas knew that there was something fishy about Rothstein's investments. I asked her that question. She said: "I have no comment to the media whatsoever."
Last year, Villegas' estranged ex-husband Tony was arrested for the murder of Melissa Britt Lewis, an attorney at Rothstein's firm and Debra Villegas' best friend. That incident was the reason Rothstein cited for hiring a security detail off-duty cops to guard his home.
As Daily Pulp reported, Rothstein himself returned to Fort Lauderdale this afternoon. The lawyer is said to be negotiating a deal with federal officials.
