SHARE British au pair’s lawyers hire her to do filing work

Louise Woodward, the British au pair convicted in the death of an 8-month-old boy in her care, has taken a job working for the law firm that defended her.

Woodward, who is under orders from a judge to stay in Massachusetts during her appeals, has been doing some filing work at the Silverglate and Good law firm. The 19-year-old has also been able to travel on the subway and shop and eat in restaurants without attracting much attention.Woodward was convicted by a jury of second-degree murder for Matthew Eappen's death last February. Judge Hiller Zobel reduced the verdict to manslaughter and set her free, sentencing her to nine months already served.
