Published on .

James Lake, former partner of PR agency Robinson Lake Sawyer Miller, a unit of Bozell Worldwide, pleaded guilty to wire fraud and election law violations in exchange for an independent counsel's pledge not to charge Robinson Lake or Bozell. Mr. Lake had been granted immunity in exchange for cooperation in an investigation into former Agriculture Secretary Mike Espy's relationships with agricultural lobbyists, but he chose to waive his immunity to protect his partners, who were not aware of his misdeeds, the Los Angeles Times reported. The PR agency has changed its name to Robinson Lerer Sawyer Miller.
