Lawyer Gets Probation in Burglaries

SANFORD – The Seminole County attorney who burglarized the home and business of a client who had made him angry, on Monday pleaded no contest to burglary, grand theft and criminal mischief.

Albert Ford II, 44, was sentenced to 15 years probation. Prosecutors agreed to a lighter-than-normal sentence provided that Ford continues attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings and seeing a therapist.

 Surveillance cameras at the home and business of an executive, who runs a luxury travel coach factory, captured pictures of Ford, armed with a gun, tearing up a yard light and door bell at the executive’s house.
