A lawyer for Heidi Fleiss' father may be allowed to represent him at trial, even though the attorney may have to cross-examine his client's second daughter, whom he used to represent, a judge said Tuesday. But U.S. District Judge Consuelo Marshall said Philip Heller must first waive his client's right to appeal on the basis of "ineffective counsel," an issue Paul Fleiss otherwise conceivably could raise if convicted on tax evasion and money laundering charges.

Heidi Fleiss must waive her right to "conflict-free" counsel at her upcoming federal tax-evasion trial because one of her lawyers advised her father earlier in the case, a judge said Monday. U.S. District Judge Consuelo Marshall also said Fleiss' father, who faces money-laundering charges, would have to agree to be cross-examined by a lawyer to whom he may have divulged certain facts about the case, and understand that the attorney may use that information during questioning.

Dr. Paul Fleiss, a prominent pediatrician and the father of Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss, is expected to plead guilty in federal court this morning to charges of conspiracy to conceal his daughter's illegal income from the Internal Revenue Service, his attorney said Wednesday. The elder Fleiss, who has practiced medicine in Los Angeles for 30 years, will plead guilty to lesser charges in an effort to reduce his potential sentence, attorney Christopher Caldwell said.

Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss, who for three years supplied call girls to some of the world's richest men, was convicted Thursday of conspiracy, tax evasion and money laundering in a federal case that, finally, named the names of her clientele. The 29-year-old madam, dressed in a tan business suit, buried her head in her hands and wept as the nine-woman, three-man jury announced the verdict.

April 9, 1995 | Shawn Hubler, Shawn Hubler is a Times staff writer who broke the story of Heidi Fleiss' call-girl ring in 1993.
He is probably the last man anyone would picture as the Hollywood Madam's dad. Pediatrician, scholar and lecturer, Paul Fleiss told other people how to raise their kids. Even now, in homes across Los Angeles, mothers quote his signature advice: "Just love 'em," the doctor would say with a smile. "You can't love your kids too much." It's an adage that carries a bittersweet irony.

Dr. Paul Fleiss apparently believed that it was quite progressive of him not to reprimand his children ("Did Father Know Best?" by Shawn Hubler, April 9). Although his brood enjoyed privilege, opportunity and money, his abdication of guidance eventually yielded him some kids in rehab and another in court for pandering. It's sad that he won't admit his experimental methods failed. Those of us who emigrated from Lithuania, Poland or Hungary in the '50s and '60s had old-fashioned parents who sternly but intelligently admonished us for our misdeeds, occasionally with a whack when needed.

The identity of yet another of Heidi Fleiss' johns was put to rest Thursday as federal court jurors were shown tape of a sweating, fidgeting Charlie Sheen testifying that he had ordered call girls from the Hollywood madam at least 27 times. Pausing repeatedly to mop his brow and sip ice water, the star of "Platoon" and "The Three Musketeers" identified seven checks he said he gave to prostitutes between December, 1991, and February, 1993, including one for a woman he hired on Christmas Day. Sheen added that he had solicited so-called "Heidi girls" at least 20 other times, paying cash, and said he had bypassed the madam at least 10 more times and called the prostitutes himself.
