ARDC Accuses Lawyer of Converting Bond Refunds

BEFORE THE HEARING BOARD:

The ARDC has accused an attorney of converting bond refunds that were due to his clients. When a defendant is arrested he can often post a bond to allow him to remain free while the case is proceeding through the courts. Here, the ARDC has alleged that in four instances the attorney received a refund of the bond at the conclusion of the criminal case and that he was required to deposit the refund in his trust account and pay it (minus his legal fees) to the defendant.

These allegations have not been proven and there has been no finding of fact.
