"An Illinois man was sentenced to two years in jail for posing as an attorney and acting in over 60 cases without a law degree, the Chicago Sun-Times reported Tuesday. Tahir Malik, 47, was jailed after he pleaded guilty Monday in Stokie, Ill., to charges of forgery and impersonation of a lawyer. Malik, a convicted felon, was arrested in December after courthouse staff grew suspicious of him. 'No one suspected anything for years because he did everything right -- except obtain a law degree,' Sheriff Tom Dart said."
