Seems that the lawyer convicted of disability fraud in Kentucky has "disappeared" !!

Eric Conn was convicted and agreed to pay some big money back.

The court let him out on his own with a "monitoring" device.

Apparently he cut it off and is nowhere to found !!

Well Duh.

The guy had millions of dollars stashed and they actually thought he would show up for his "sentencing".



Disability attorney who stole $600M from the government disappears, FBI says

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.”




2nd story ....
Attorney called Mr Conn who stole $600m worth of social security from the government VANISHES one month before his sentencing

Eric Conn, the flamboyant Eastern Kentucky lawyer who pleaded guilty in March in a $600 million Social Security fraud scheme, has disappeared

Conn removed his electronic monitoring device in violation of his bond and authorities don't know where is is

He pleaded guilty to stealing from the Social Security Administration and paying bribes to a judge to rubber-stamp disability claims for thousands of his clients

Conn remained free on bond pending his sentencing next month, but a judge had ordered him to be on home detention with electronic monitoring

Employees in Conn’s office had heard him say he would flee to Cuba or Ecuador to avoid criminal charges

I was going over that mess early this morning.
And so far two of the people that he allegedly got bogus benefits for, have committed suicide when their benefits got cut off.
What a mess.

Buck

a little background info.
The legal Rep in a case can charge up to $6000 per case and it is deducted from the monthly benefits of the receiver for how ever long it takes to pay the total fee.

Originally the Fed paid attorneys directly at no cost to the receiver, which was about $500 or so.

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.

Who would be dumb enough to trust a lawyer like that. He must have bribed the Judge that allowed him out on bail too.

He and his money are long gone.

Evidently, he bribed a doctor, too, to sign off on these cases. So, there's three involved.

Bet they are all sipping on a MaiTai somewhere laughing at what they pulled off.

Waste...Fraud...Abuse

I'm wondering that as well. Why wasn't he ordered to pay back, oh I don't know, $600 Million?

Maybe we should be watching to see if that judge suddenly retires and moves to the South Pacific, or something like that.

I'm guessing the rest went to recipients..ie, his clients, sounds like he took a cut for getting them their claims.
A lot of seperate legal actions to get the other $$ back.
