Ex-Fugees Band Member’s Former Attorney Receives Sentence

According to the sources from Reader Wall, 82-year-old David Kenner, who previously acted as a legal representative for Prakazrel “Pras” Michel, an erstwhile member of the celebrated music group Fugees, has been handed a one-year unsupervised probation period and a fine of $5,000. Kenner has confessed to violating a court decree by sharing confidential court materials, including delicate grand jury data, to a news outlet while he was defending Michel regarding a case linked to criminal foreign influence offenses.

Michel’s Case and Potential Conflict of Interest

Michel was convicted in April for conspiring with a Malaysian financial expert named Jho Low to manipulate the movements of the U.S. government during the tenure of two past leaders. Michel, after being pronounced guilty, has initiated a plea for a new trial, proposing, among other things, that Kenner’s contempt of court charge brought about a conflict of interest which had negative impacts on his defense strategy.

Kenner’s Confession and Decision to Quit Law Practice

In light of violating the protective order of the court, Kenner came forth with a public confession and announced that he will be stepping down from practising law. Kenner was found guilty of a misdemeanor contempt charge. Despite his conviction, Kenner’s counsel highlighted his long-standing record of notable work in serving a wide breadth of clients during his extensive legal career.

Michel’s Current Legal Advisers and Ongoing Review

In the wake of Kenner’s conviction, Michel’s current team of legal advisors have chosen to remain quiet on the issue. On their end, they have posed a request for a rerun of the trial, a proposition that is currently being examined by U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly.
