Newport Beach millionaire Don Haidl, the former assistant sheriff who helped authorities take down former Orange County Sheriff Mike Carona last year, will avoid jail time but will have to do a “heavy dose” of community service along with paying a fine for lying on his 2002 taxes, a federal judge said Monday. Federal Judge Andrew J. Guilford delayed Haidl’s sentencing after telling the U.S. attorney’s office that he wasn’t satisfied with Haidl just paying a fine and getting probation.

A Newport Beach attorney who was recently suspended from the state bar after being convicted as a sex offender has 30 days to notify his clients, other attorneys and pay back any money he hasn’t earned, according to state bar documents. Paul Etan Fisher, 50, was convicted of lewd acts upon a 15-year-old girl in October and sentenced to a year in jail and five years of formal probation. More than two months later, on Dec. 27, the State Bar of California suspended Fisher from practicing law. The felony conviction was just the latest on a growing pile of misconduct by Fisher, according to documents made available by the state bar. The bar put Fisher on probation in 2007 after it concluded he was filing court motions without merit and entering into improper business agreements with his clients.

Band members and boosters from Costa Mesa High School lined up in court Thursday to scold a volunteer for the "utter monstrosity" of her crime: stealing tens of thousands of dollars from their booster club's coffers. Jennifer Borders-Piatti, the former band booster club president, pleaded guilty to embezzling more than $50,000 from the group during 2011 and 2012. She faced a maximum of three years in prison for a felony charge of grand theft, but as part of a plea agreement, an Orange County Superior Court judge sentenced her to a year in jail and three years of probation and ordered her to pay restitution - $51,974.32, what she stole plus interest.
