ROSLYN, N.Y. (CBS 2) — A Long Island lawyer was found guilty of running an adoption scam described by the Nassau County District Attorney as  unconscionable.

Kevin Cohen, 42, of Roslyn was convicted of grand larceny for stealing more than $300,000 from prospective adoptive parents.

Prosecutors said Cohen scammed hopeful couples with fake sonograms, promising them babies that did not exist.

He also used phony records on forged stationary from hospitals and doctors.

Cohen faces up to 92 years in prison when he’s sentenced in December.
