BOULDER, Colo. — A former Boulder attorney pleaded guilty Monday to stealing more than $40,000 from her clients, according to the 20th Judicial District Attorney’s Office.

This is the second time Emily Cohen, 42, has been convicted of the crime. A jury found Cohen guilty of theft and fraud in 2014 and sentenced her to prison; however, the Colorado Court of Appeals overturned the convictions in 2019.

Prosecutors brought the case to trial again so that Cohen’s criminal record would reflect her felony conduct, said District Attorney Michael Dougherty.

“Her clients had gone to Ms. Cohen for legal help and, instead, had their money and trust stolen by this defendant," Dougherty said. “This felony conviction represents justice for the victims. Our office will continue to fight for the most vulnerable to scams and fraud, including members of our immigrant community.”
