Defense lawyer convicted on obstruction charges

Saturday - 6/23/2012, 8:21am  ET

WASHINGTON - A defense lawyer has been convicted of making up evidence and promoting perjury in defending an alleged drug dealer.

Sixty-six-year-old Charles F. Daum of Arnold, Md., was convicted at a bench trial Friday. Two co-defendants, 62-year-old Daaiyah Pasha of Washington and her daughter, 32-year-old Iman Pasha of Springfield, Va., were found guilty of one count of conspiracy to obstruct justice.

Prosecutors say Daum made up evidence and encouraged two witnesses to commit perjury. The Pashas worked as private investigators for Daum.

Daum and the Pashas will be sentenced on Nov. 19.
