Ind. Courts - Ex longtime Indiana Super Lawyer now represented by public defender

Updating this list of earlier ILB entries on William F. Conour, including this one with the criminal complaint, this one re his resignation from the Indiana bar, and this one mentioning the reception for Chief Justice John G. Roberts in the Conour Atrium at the IU-Indianapolis Law School, today the ABAJournal notes:

A once-prominent personal injury attorney in Indiana is now represented by a public defender as he awaits trial in a federal wire fraud case in which he has been accused of stealing $4.5 million from 25 clients.

William F. Conour, 65, told a federal judge in Indianapolis at a Friday hearing that his only income is $2,000 a month from Social Security. Authorities say he misappropriated client funds in an operation dating back as far as 1999 that involved running his law firm in a manner akin to a Ponzi scheme.
