Not a Gambling Problem

An attorney who had converted $10,500 in trust funds was suspended for at least three years by the Indiana Supreme Court. The attorney went into partnership with an attorney who had an existing escrow account. The old account was being closed out when the problem was discovered. The accused attorney at first claimed to his partner that the checks at issue were forged and then volunteered that he did not have a gambling problem. He later admitted the misconduct and made restitution. (Mike Frisch)
