Disgraced Las Vegas lawyer sentenced to the maximum

Disgraced lawyer Robert Graham, who stole millions of dollars from his clients, was sentenced to serve 16 to 40 years in prison.

He was given the maximum sentence on all five counts -- two counts of theft and three counts of exploitation of an older/vulnerable person.

Graham pleaded guilty to stealing $16 million from trust funds set up for clients who included children, older people and disabled clients.

Several victims testified how Graham's greed ruined their lives and asked for the maximum sentence of 40 years.

Graham told the court, he had a gambler's mentality.
