This is not the first time that Codina has been dragged to the court. In 1997 she was charged with malpractice after falsifying books and stealing $20,000 from the Ontario Province. Her crimes did not end there.

 

In 2000, she was convicted of stealing from over eleven clients in New York from 1996 to 1999, when she operated under a company called Codina Partners International.
