The Kentucky Social Security disability lawyer who bribed judges and cheated the government out of millions of dollars has been captured in Honduras. I’m very glad he got caught, and I hope he got indigestion from that pizza.
Here are the opening paragraphs of a story from the American Bar Association:
A lawyer has been captured in Honduras after fleeing the United States to avoid sentencing for bribing an administrative law judge to obligate the government to pay more than $550 million in lifetime disability payments.
Eric C. Conn was was arrested while leaving a restaurant in La Ceiba, the Honduran news publication El Pais reported. The Lexington Herald-Leader, the Louisville Courier-Journal and CBS covered the report.
Police reportedly learned of Conn’s location after he connected to the restaurant’s wi-fi.
The FBI confirmed the arrest, which occurred after Conn ate at a Pizza Hut.
