MAYS LANDING, N.J. (AP) - A prominent southern New Jersey elder-law attorney who defrauded clients out of millions of dollars and laundering the funds through various bank accounts is now headed to prison.

State authorities say Barbara Lieberman, of Northfield, received a 10-year sentence Wednesday. She also will forfeit $3 million that the state seized from her, which will be used to pay restitution to her victims.

She also has surrendered her law license.

The 63-year-old Lieberman pleaded guilty last November to money laundering. Authorities have said she used the money to buy cars, vacation homes and pay off six-digit credit card bills.

There were 17 named victims in the case totaling nearly $3.9 million, which was allegedly split between Lieberman and four other people who were all recently indicted in the case.
