“Larry Noodles” is the nickname I got when I was an inmate at Otisville Federal prison. My real name is Lawrence Dressler. I had stolen a pound of spiral noodles from the prison warehouse where I had worked for 13 cents an hour, thus I was given the nickname "Larry Noodles."
I was locked up in the Otisville prison camp for 18 months after I pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit mortgage fraud. I was one of many closing attorneys in seven real estate closings located in New Haven involving subprime mortgages. These transactions occurred in the fall of 2007 and one in the spring of 2008, just as the real estate market crashed. Although my restitution order was $400,000 I only made about $4,000 in legal fees for the seven closings in which I pleaded guilty.
