Ind. Courts - Valpo attorney charged in theft of $1.64 million

Bob Kasarda's story in the NWI Times begins:

Local attorney Clark Holesinger is charged with stealing $1.64 million while working for four related local businesses.

Holesinger, 52, of Valparaiso, faces four C felony counts of theft, each of which carry a potential sentence of two to eight years behind bars.

He is accused of stealing $817,963 from North Star Stone Inc., where he had been hired to calculate and pay the company's taxes, according to charging information.

The company received word in December that a levy had been placed on its account as a result of delinquent taxes, police said. An investigation reportedly revealed Holesinger had not paid state and federal payroll taxes or state sales taxes.

Police said they learned Holesinger obtained money from family members that he transferred to North Star Stone as partial restitution.
