Ind. Courts - Former Marion attorney turns himself in on warrant

Karla Bowsher has a story today in the Marion Chronicle-Tribune, but it is $$$ and all we can read is the snippet:

A former Marion attorney who resigned last year amid misconduct charges was arrested Sunday on suspicion of forgery and check fraud, jail records show.

Shane Beal, 43, turned himself in to the Grant County Sheriff's Department after a warrant was issued in connection with one felony forgery and two counts of check fraud, Sheriff's Sgt. Eric Fields said. Grant County Prosecutor Jim Luttrull Jr. could not immediately be reached for comment late Monday.

ILB: I looked up Mr. Beal in the Roll of Attorneys. He resigned from the Indiana bar on 8-14-2013. The Roll lists 18 concluded disciplinary cases for Mr. Beal.

In addition, the ILB located a Court of Appeals opinion from May 7, 2014 that begins:

Appellant-Defendant, Shane Beal (Beal), appeals the trial court’s denial of his motion for summary judgment, concluding that a genuine issue of material fact exist as to whether Beal’s representation of Appellee-Plaintiff, Edwin Blinn, Jr. (Blinn), in a federal criminal case constituted legal malpractice. We affirm.
The case is Beal, Shane, et al. v. Blinn, Edwin Jr., trans. pending.
