A work trip from London to Los Angeles doesn't usually cost $65,000. But it does if you're padding your travel expenses in order to lavish gifts on your Lebanese mistress.

On Wednesday, respected London attorney Christopher Grierson plead guilty to fraud -- for spending over $1 million on his lover over the course of their 18-month affair and charging it to the prestigious international law firm Hogan Lovells, where he was a senior partner. Grierson will now spend three years in prison, reports Britain's Daily Mail newspaper.
