Crooked Lawyer Pleads Guilty to Social Security Disability Fraud

The Social Security disability system has enough funding problems without lawyers or claimants committing fraud in order to obtain benefits. Finally, after years of scrutiny, a lawyer in Kentucky has pleaded guilty to defrauding the government. Good riddance. Fortunately, such lawyers are rare, but the ones who are out there give the rest of us a bad name.

Here are excerpts from an article in the Courier-Journal newspaper:

Eric C. Conn pleaded guilty in federal court in Lexington to stealing from the Social Security Administration and bribing a federal judge. The man who lived in a palatial eastern Kentucky home and was a frequent world traveler faces up to 12 years in prison at his July 14 sentencing.

Federal prosecutors claimed Conn raked in millions of dollars by paying a doctor and a judge to rubber-stamp false disability claims using phony medical evidence.

Conn, 56, pleaded guilty to one count of theft of government money and one count of payment of gratuities.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
