Former Charleston, West Virginia Lawyer and NFL Agent Sentenced to 1 Day in Prison

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Former Charleston lawyer and National Football League agent, Dante di Trapano was sentenced to one day in federal prison last Thursday after admitting that he falsified a 2005 loan application for half of a million dollars.

U.S. District Judge Thomas E. Johnston also ordered di Trapano to perform 1,000 hours of community service while he spends five years on supervised release.  The judge warned that if he re-offends or violates the terms of his supervised release, he can expect a lengthy prison sentence.

“You’ve been through this before, and you know the perils of not staying with the program and protecting your sobriety,” Johnston said. “You’ve been given a tremendous opportunity here.”

The former Charleston, West Virginia Lawyer and NFL agent has had a long history of legal problems attributed to drug addiction.  Di Trapano’s drug addiction and concomitant legal problems put the brakes on a promising legal career.  He was once an NFL agent to stars like Randy Moss.

The judge obviously recognized that this offense happened five years ago and that di Trapano has apparently made progress in dealing with drug addiction.  Do you think the former West Virginia attorney and NFL agent’s punishment was fair?

West Law Firm has great lawyers. They helped me in my case and every time I needed to call or talk to someone they were willing to talk and help me in anyway. David is the absolute best. His communication was unbelievable throughout the entire process as well as his worth ethic. He took great care of me I would highly recommend him for any auto related injury. He continually fought for me and got me the settlement I deserved!

I've worked with other attorneys in the past, but West Law Firm has gone over and above my expectations! I was expecting the same old runaround about when somebody could get to my case. They kept me up-to-date about everything. They really worked for me and I would highly recommend them.
