Former Attorney Set to Plead Guilty To Taking Clients' Money

Images-1Kenneth Hoesch is a former Zeeland attorney who is scheduled to plead guilty to charges of mail fraud, and making a false statement on a tax return.  These schemings enabled Hoesch to steal about $900,000 in clients' estate planning trusts. Hoesch was recently found competent to stand trial and both sides agree that $835,000 should be paid in restitution.
