A Kentucky disability attorney who stole $600 million from the federal government has disappeared, the FBI said.
Eric Conn pleaded guilty in March to stealing from the federal government and bribing a judge. He was ordered to pay back tens of millions of dollars. His sentencing was scheduled for next month.
The FBI said Saturday that Conn violated the conditions of his bond by removing his electronic monitoring device which prompted the U.S. District Court to issue a warrant for his arrest.
General counsel for the FBI’s Louisville office, David Habich, said that Conn’s “whereabouts are currently unknown.”

I hope they watch the judge, too. $600 million split two ways can buy a lot of time languishing on some exotic beach in some far away place!
He's been doing this since 1993?!!
WASTE - FRAUD - ABUSE in Big Government Programs! Oh well! It's just taxpayer money. We just keep putting it in and "they" keep spending it on more and more programs to fund their own personal slush funds.
