Texting Paralegal Loses Prosecutor His Job

prosecutor-getparalegalcertificationBeing a paralegal has its challenges, but one of them should not be to receive intimate texts and images from those the paralegal deals with.

However a Missouri prosecutor has resigned following evidence that he forwarded the same to a 26 year old paralegal.

John Quarenghi, 48, was an assistant prosecutor in St Louis County’s Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, who resigned December to save his office from embarrassment after the messages became public.

The embarrassing messages and images emerged during an investigation into Jillian Nichols, a paralegal who allegedly told an accused sex offender that she could get favoritism from an assistant prosecutor for $10,000.

Although authorities will not say if Quarenghi was the prosecutor she was referring to, it was known that he regularly works on sex offender cases and had been on several dates with Nichols by that point.


U.S. Attorney Richard Callahan would not say whether Nichols had been referring to Quarenghi but emphasized that the prosecutor in question had absolutely no part in her alleged bribery scheme.
