Lawyer accused of stealing client's inheritance

Posted on April 19th, 2010 No Comments

A 62-year-old lawyer from Alton, Illinois, was arrested last Monday and charged with financial exploitation of an elderly person. He remains in custody in lieu of $250,000 bail.

He has been accused of keeping and cashing a check for $138,826 that was meant to go to his then-client. The money was the client’s inheritance from her mother, who died in Ohio in 2004.

The 81-year-old woman who was meant to receive the inheritance money is now represented by a different lawyer, who discovered the theft last month.
