Perfidious Albion

An attorney from Albion who was arrested for misuse of estate funds has resigned from the Bar of the Indiana Supreme Court.

WISHTV.com8  reported  on her arrest and included a rather unfortunate mug shot

A Noble County attorney for an estate was arrested Monday for allegedly utilizing her position to make unauthorized cash withdrawals from the estate’s account.

The arrest stemmed from an investigation that began in March of last year, which found that Diane Miller, 60, made unauthorized withdrawals from the estate totaling $63,000, according to a press release from the Noble County Sheriff’s Department.

Miller was charged with one felony count of theft. She was later released on her own recognizance, promising in writing to show up for future court appearances and not engage in illegal activity, the press release said.

A special prosecutor for the Kosciusko County Prosecutors Office has been appointed to prosecute the case.
