180 Days for Misappropriation of Funds

180 Days for Misappropriation of Funds

$225k that was spent that did not belong to the attorney.  Remember in Law Office Management how we discussed that money that is unearned cannot be spent.  That is unethical.  Money that isn’t earned must stay in an escrow account.  Once it is earned, it can be moved to a business account to spend on whatever needs exist.

How do you feel that he received six months jail time for this breach?  Yes, he paid some of it back and has another 30 days to pay more back.  Is 180 days enough time?
