The Indiana Supreme Court has disbarred an already suspended attorney who was convicted of three counts of felony theft of client funds and dishonest conduct.
The attorney was admitted in 1989. He was suspended for at least three years in 2008 for writing unauthorized checks on his law firm's trust account and false statements in the bar investigation. He was later found in contemprt for practicing while suspended and fined.
The criminal charges that led to disbarment were "based on [his] exercising unauthorized control over funds in excess of %17,000 belongiong to 24 clients or former clients." (Mike Frisch)
