Ind. Courts - Still more on "Former Richmond attorney arrested on 26 counts of theft"

Updating this ILB post from June 30th, Mike Emery of the Richmond Palladium-Item reported late yesterday:

A special judge has ruled against a former local bankruptcy attorney’s motion to dismiss 21 felony charges against him.

Charles R. Hyde Jr. was charged with 26 counts of Class D felony theft and one count of Class C felony corrupt business influence after he allegedly collected fees from clients without completing their bankruptcies.

Special Judge Marianne Vorhees of Delaware County heard arguments earlier this month on the defense’s motions to dismiss the charges, which she has denied. However, a prosecution motion to dismiss six of the theft charges has been granted. The defense claimed Hyde had referred those clients to another attorney for the completion of their bankruptcies. * * *

A trial is scheduled for 9 a.m. on Nov. 16 in Wayne County Superior Court I.

Hyde, who was arrested on Aug. 7, 2013, resigned in May 2012 from the practice of law with the Indiana bar through a filing to the Indiana Supreme Court. He is not permitted to petition for reinstatement in Indiana until five years after his resignation.
