LARGO — Denis deVlaming knows a thing or two about the law. The Clearwater attorney has defended murderers, rapists and drug dealers. But about a year ago, he unwittingly collaborated in an Internet crime.
He went on eBay and bought his mother a $7.92 hearing aid.
Evelyn deVlaming, now 98, had lost her previous hearing aid — a custom-fit model that tucked into her ear. “We paid $3,000 for the pair or thereabouts,” her son said recently.
