“Things Fall Apart”: A Memoir By Hilary Neiman About A Reproductive Law Attorney Who Went To Jail

Hilary Neiman, the Maryland attorney who plead guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud in her connection with the international baby selling ring, has written a book.

Amazon provides the following description:

Early one morning in 2011, Hilary Neiman was hard at work in the offices of her own successful adoption and surrogacy practice, when three agents of the FBI entered without warning, read her Miranda rights, and informed her, “This is your Come to Jesus day.” How does one go from being raised in a loving, ethical family and earning an advanced education, including in the law, to being accused in the headlines of joining a baby-selling, human trafficking ring? Eventually, Hilary would plead guilty, but not to baby-selling. She would forfeit her license to practice law, and spend five months in the Atwood Minimum Security Camp in Lexington, Kentucky. Things Fall Apart is the story of a young woman with nothing but the promise of a fulfilled life ahead of her, whose childhood dream turned into a nightmare.

    I bought the book I was hoping that Ms. Neiman would step up accept responsibility and just be honest. She did. She accepted responsibility. And I was with her up until she point that she began in my mind to rationalize and make excuses. I don’t think this book is going to help the victims she harmed along the way. My hope is that any monies made from this book go right back to the families damaged.
