Ex-Solicitor Back In Court

A troubled former solicitor, who has repeatedly been in trouble due to a drink problem, has been sentenced for damaging a police cell after yet another alcohol-related arrest.

Ofra Azar-Freedman, 52, who claimed to be homeless, is known to have owned a £785,000 four-bedroom house in Tenterden Drive, Hendon in the heart of north London's Jewish community.

She appeared in the dock at Hendon Magistrates Court again in the same building the Family Law specialist had represented clients during her twenty-five year career.

Azar-Freedman started her own law firm in 2010, but records show it has been dissolved.

She pleaded guilty to one count of causing £126.96 worth of criminal damage to a cell she was confined in at Colindale Police Station on October 18.

Azar-Freedman had been arrested on suspicion of being drunk and disorderly at Barnet General Hospital earlier the same day.

She was sentenced to a community order, which includes a probation-ordered rehabilitation activity requirement of up to twenty days.

She was also ordered to pay £126 compensation at the rate of £10.00 per week.
