Struggling again to glean the identity of a man accused of fleecing clients of thousands of dollars, a Harbor Municipal Court judge on Monday ordered the defendant to remain in jail. After twice pressing the man for his true name and date of birth, Judge Susanne S. Shaw got this response: "Your honor," said the defendant, "I don't know." The defendant's attorney then added that her client was invoking his constitutional right, under the Fifth Amendment, to avoid self-incrimination.
