Lawyer loses bid to escape charges


George, 57, of Westwood, has represented a who’s who of clients from alleged members of the New England Mafia to the trash collector convicted in the Cape Cod murder of fashion writer Christa Worthington. He is now accused of helping a former client “clean’’ drug profits in return for a fee. The former client, career criminal Ronald Dardinski, was working as an informant for investigators.
