 CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) - An attorney who was paid by the NCAA during its investigation of Miami athletics now faces charges from the Florida Bar, alleging a wide range of ethics violations occurred during that arrangement.
Maria Elena Perez was the attorney for Nevin Shapiro, the convicted Ponzi scheme architect and former Hurricanes booster who was at the center of the NCAA probe. Perez used subpoena power to interview witnesses for a bankruptcy investigation, but the NCAA tried to use part of the testimony she gleaned in those interviews as part of its case against Miami.
The NCAA does not have subpoena power.
The Bar says Perez denied working for the NCAA, and broke rules including ones regarding billing and confidentiality practices.
Perez declined comment.
