Michelle Suárez, Uruguay's first trans-Senator has plead guilty to a variety of crimes relating to her legal practice including fraud and falsifying signatures of zher clients (archived). The communist former Frente Amplio Senator born in 1983 claims the titles of first trans-University graduate, first trans-lawyer, and first trans-holder of elected office in Uruguay. Zhe has been under house arrest since April 18, 2018 due to zher morbid obesity and diabetes making prison incarceration prohibitively expensive. Suárez's legal problems began shortly after zher October 2017 arrival in the Senate, a mere three months later Suárez resigned zher seat when the first forgery charges against her emerged. In the initial case zhe trans-signed a document reliquishing a father's parental and visitation rights forever. The objections of the father and the father's actual attorney lead to this ham's fall from the trough and the investigation of a number of Suárez's other frauds.
Per the plea agreement, Suárez faces another year of home detention followed by two years of probation during which zhe will be barred from public office and pursuing reinstatement of zher license to practice law.
