Introducing AT&T Digital PCS for as low as 9i a minute and $40 off digital phones. 1 mm By Monika Gonzalez and Matt Reed Palm Beach Post Staff Writers BOCA RATON A Vero Beach man, who police say killed his wife, died Friday after crashing into a highway overpass support while being chased by Boca Raton police. Lance Adams, 50, had called a friend in Boca Raton several times Friday morning to say he had killed his wife, tried to slit his wrists and needed a gun, Florida Highway Patrol Lt. Pembrook Burrows said. The friend, whose name was not released, called Boca Raton police shortly after 10 a.m. and said he had agreed to meet Adams at a Denny's restaurant on Palmetto Park Road just east of Interstate 95. Officers called their counterparts in Vero Beach, who sent an officer to Adams' home, Burrows said. They found Adams' estranged wife Joy, 37, dead, police said. About 11 a.m. Adams arrived at the Denny's parking lot where officers in unmarked cars waited to arrest him when he walked into the restaurant. But he kept driving around the building for ahalf-hour. Burrows said when plainclothes detectives started walking toward Adams' beige Lincoln Town Car, Adams drove away and onto northbound 1-95. Several marked police cars followed, witnesses said. Five miles north of the Denny's, Adams veered east, ramming into two columns supporting the Clint Moore Road overpass. Burrows said a truck driver told troopers the police cars were at least 100 yards behind the Lincoln. He said $1,100 in cash and an apologetic suicide note addressed to Adams' parents were found in a brown satchel in Adams' car. Prosperi faces prison, fines, $700,000 bill By Scott Hiaasen Palm Beach Post Staff Writer Paul Prosperi, a well-known Palm Beach lawyer and society figure, was sentenced Friday to three years in prison for filing false tax returns that prosecutors said omitted millions of dollars he stole from a client. U.S. District Judge Kenneth L Ryskamp also placed Prosperi on one year of probation and imposed a $25,000 fine. The judge also ordered Prosperi to pay the unpaid taxes on the money he received from his client, Patrick Donovan, an Irish citizen. Federal prosecutors said those taxes exceed $700,000. Ryskamp threw out Pros-peri's conviction on three counts of creating counterfeit securities. The judge said prosecutors should have introduced real certificates of deposit to compare with the fake ones prosecutors said Prosperi used to mislead Donovan about his accounts. That does not take away from the court's conclusion that these were fraudulent documents," Ryskamp said. If the counterfeiting counts had remained. Prosperi could have faced as much as 6'4 years in prison. Assistant U.S. Attorney Stephen Carlton said he will recommend that his office appeal the judge's ruling. Prosperi, 48, would not comment. He remains free on $500,000 bond while he appeals his conviction which could take more than a year. Eleven other counts against the real estate lawyer, including mail fraud and money-laundering charges, were thrown out at his November trial.
