Lawyer accused Of Trying To Blackmail Ex-Lover Into Sending Nude Pixs

Lawyer accused of trying to blackmail ex-lover into sending nude photos may avoid jail
The New York Daily News by ALISON GENDAR - May 25, 2010

A disgraced lawyer could escape jail time despite allegations he tried to blackmail a former lover into sending him nude photos of herself. Steven Klig, a 46-year-old married father of two, pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of unauthorized use of a computer, a charge Manhattan prosecutors agreed could carry six months or less behind bars. Klig allegedly threatened to send an X-rated DVD to his ex's family if she didn't cough up more photos. He was accused of e-mailing some of his threats while on a family vacation to Walt Disney World. Klig's wife sat in court yesterday as he told a federal judge he was "truly sorry for my conduct." He is due for sentencing in September.

BACKGROUND:

'EX' SEX EXTORT ARREST
The New York Post by Bruce Golding - January 7, 2009

A hotshot tax attorney was busted for allegedly trying to blackmail a former lover into sending him nude photos by threatening to give her husband, neighbors and relatives what he claimed was a raunchy DVD of their past sexcapades. Steven Klig, a partner at finance giant Deloitte, allegedly sent the woman extortionate e-mails from such locations as Disney World, where the 44-year-old married father of two was on vacation last week. "Just to give you a head's up. I've been doing a little editing on our video. Mostly some blurring of myself so that I won't be recognized," he wrote in one e-mail, according to the criminal complaint. "You, on the other hand, can be seen very clearly having the time of your life being f---ed by me." Klig, of Great Neck, LI, allegedly claimed to have secretly recorded the footage during "one of our sessions," which the woman told the feds took place "a number of years ago." Klig, who was arrested Monday on federal extortion and harassment charges, allegedly began his salacious shenanigans with a letter mailed to the unidentified woman's home last Oct. 20. In it, he allegedly said he would turn over the DVD in exchange for a "one-time reunion" and "a couple of recent nude pictures of you." The woman didn't respond, but instead went to the FBI after Klig allegedly e-mailed her husband on Nov. 10, using the address robertgibbons1967 @yahoo.com and saying he was an "old friend" looking for the woman's e-mail address. The feds then began a computerized cat-and-mouse game with Klig after they say he e-mailed the woman on Dec. 11. The next day, an agent posing as the woman wrote Klig back, asking what he wanted and pleading, "I want to keep my family out of this." He allegedly responded, "I don't need money. What I really want is something new to look at." Klig then allegedly detailed his preferences for the "first installment" as: "(1) fully clothed; (2) without your shirt; (3) without your shirt and pants (in just a bra and panties); (4) without the bra and (5) fully nude." The e-mail exchange continued through Jan. 3, with the agent offering various excuses for failing to provide the photos and Klig ultimately threatening to post the video on the Internet, investigators said. Klig apparently tried to cover his tracks by using public computers and free or hijacked wireless Internet access to contact his victim, sources said. Klig, free on $200,000 bond, is currently "on leave" from Deloitte, a spokeswoman said. His lawyer did not return a phone call yesterday, and a woman who spoke from behind the door at Klig's home said, "There's no one here by that name."

The legal system is about money, sex and power. Not the law.

He should lose his Lic. to practice.

pics wanted, though said...

This lawyer was at least nice enough not to put the pictures on the internet. Attorneys can 'legally' extort whatever they want- because they're lawyers and know how to get around things- but posting her nude pics would have been a bit low.

Where at Disney was he? That new attraction, just for lawyers and judges, "Decent into Hell; a preview." Of course, he's eligible for the attorney/pervert sentencing discount. And like Spitzer, whose wife is still clinging, his wife was at his court appearance.
The judge should include jail time so that he doesn't just have to use pictures for sex, he'll have fellow perverts introduce him to their world.

This lowlife belongs in jail. This is a pattern and practice, its not the first time for this piece of garbage. Do everyone a favor and put this sick puppy away and make sure he gets plenty of meds too!
