Why a Las Vegas judge who was attacked likely didn’t change or modify her attacker’s sentence
Parkland shooting Judge Elizabeth Scherer discusses a Las Vegas judge sentencing a man who attacked her in court on ‘Jesse Watters Primetime.’
A Las Vegas woman allegedly posed as an attorney and filed fake documents for clients for years, according to police.
Detectives with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) on Jan. 16 arrested Cenia Poulsen, who is now facing charges of forgery, theft, preparing or delivering a “simulated legal document,” and offering a false instrument for a public office filing, police said in a press release.
Detectives believe Poulsen, who is reportedly married to an LVMPD officer, according to 8 News Now, presented herself as an attorney to people seeking legal help since January 2022.
Poulsen would accept money from her clients to “‘file documents’ through the court systems,” LVMPD said.
