Dallas Attorney Indicted for Allegedly Stealing From Client

Dallas attorney Walter Thomas Finley was indicted after police said he stole $365,000 from a client, according to Dallas-Fort Worth NBC affiliate KXAS.

“The indictment came weeks after the FBI seized money from the lawyer in a separate case, according to forfeiture.gov, a government website that posts seizure notices,” writes reporter Scott Gordon.

Finley, 70, is charged with felony theft in a case involving the trust fund of an East Texas woman. The woman’s family gave Finley $416,000 in late 2012 to set up the fund and make quarterly payments to her, but he stopped after a year, according to a Highland Park police report and court records.
