Margaret L. McCleod Cain, once a role model in the local legal community, gave a tearful apology in Charlottesville Circuit Court for deceiving a client. "I can't give an explanation for it all," Cain said."I trusted Ms. Cain." According to defense lawyer David Heilberg, Cain suffered from depression and alcoholism beginning in 1999 and had too much pride, and shame, to seek help. Trouble seemed to follow Cain in recent years.In 2000 the state bar reprimanded Cain and ordered her to undergo counseling upon finding she had lied to a client about the status of a case.She surrendered her law license last year when the embezzlement allegation surfaced. Substitute Judge Paul F. Sheridan said it appeared that Cain had "gone off into unreality" in carrying out the charade to pocket Dickerson's settlement check. Sheridan, impressed with Cain's ability to rise out of a "terribly disadvantaged childhood," credited Cain for her work for children in Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court and as an attorney representing indigent defendants. The court received nine letters in support of Cain, including many from her former colleagues. Local lawyer Janice L. Redinger wrote that Cain was the only black defense attorney in Charlottesville for some time and filled a void for underprivileged minorities who needed legal representation. Twenty years ago, while a law student at the University of Virginia, Cain ran for Charlottesville City Council.She began practicing law in 1986.She now lives in Hampton and, according to her lawyers, works as a sitter in a health-care facility. The judge ordered that Cain be placed on supervised probation for three years and that she pay more than $15,000 in restitution.Her sentence will begin Sept. 23.

A law student at UVA, Cain failed in her bid for Council, drawing 1,713 votes.Democrats charged that Cain pulled black voters and female voters away from their candidates.David Toscano, who would later serve as a Democratic City Councilor and mayor, ran Cain,s campaign.Toscano disputes the claim that Cain,s candidacy tanked Conover,s reelection bid. ,I don,t think there was block voting based on race in that election,, Toscano says of the possibility that black voters may have voted for both Hall and Cain back in ,84.Prior to the election, a mysterious flier supporting Cain appeared in primarily black neighborhoods.The flier included a picture of Rev. Jesse Jackson with Cain, and touted a Jackson endorsement, which said, ,Sunshine or rain vote for Cain., Rev. Jackson had never officially endorsed Cain, and Cain,s campaign said it hadn,t distributed the flier. Controversy has revisited Cain, and this time, authorities say she had something to do with it.Cain, a lawyer in Charlottesville since the ,80s, had her law license revoked in November by the Virginia State Bar over allegations that she settled a client,s personal injury claim and then deposited the check into her own account.According to the Bar, Cain never notified her client about the judgment.Cain was indicted on Tuesday, February 18, by a grand jury on fraud charges in Charlottesville,s Circuit Court.
