Baker Pleaded Guilty to Mismanaging Estate Funds

Trust me fiduciaryCourt Documents indicate that the Bennington Probate court assigned Robert F. Baker to Nada Ledinko's estate. Shortly after the appointment, Baker breached his fiduciary duty when he misappropriated funds from the Ledinko estate for personal use. Baker pleaded guilty for misappropriating more than $170,000 from an estate he was managing. A judge sentenced him to six months in jail. In addition to his jail sentence, Baker has to repay $113,000.
