This morning a Jacksonville attorney who decided not to accept a plea agreement after being charged in the Allied Veterans of the World scandal has now been convicted of more than 100 charges.A seminole county jury found Kelly Mathis guilty after deliberating for more than 14 hours.Prosecutor say the 50 year old was the mastermind behind a 300 million dollar gambling ring disguised as a veterans charity.Joining us this morning is Rhonda Peoples- Waters, goodmorning.I was in that goodmorning.I was in that courtroom, and when we heard GUILTY on 103 of 104 charges, not only was Mr. Mathis shocked ...quite a few people in that courtroom shocked as well.Did this verdict surprise you?I spoke with Mr.Mathis as he left the courtroom after the verdict...here is what he said. TAKE SOTWhat message does this send to attorneys?Mathis and his attorney said they are planning to appeal...after 4 weeks of trial, how strong of a case will they have?With the maximum sentence, Mathis is facing up to 100 years behind bars with all the charges.bars with all the charges.The judge has ordered a presentence review before his sentencing date in February...what will that mean for Mathis?I spoke with Statewide Prosecutor Nick Cox after the verdict, here's what he had to say:TAKE SOT:28 people still waiting for their cases to be resolved.I spoke to the State Prosecutor who says he will still pursue those cases as he would without this conviction. But do you think it changes how the attorneys for these defendants may move going forward? 3 3 3 12:21:53-22:08Attorneys were on trial in this case and attorneys all over the nation need to be very afraid when six years after you give legal advice somebody disagrees with that legal advice and they can convict you in court. 3 3 3 12:13:21-31I'm very satisfied it was the right thing to do. And At least it sends the message that when something in the system is going to go wrong like this people will be held accountable whether we have bar cards or not will be held accountable.
