SHERMAN, TX - A former local attorney who defrauded two of his deceased clients of more than half a million dollars, and then falsely presented himself as a lawyer after he was disbarred, is headed to state prison.
The Grayson County District Attorney's Office tells us says 70-year old E.C. Green of Denison, who pleaded guilty in October to three felony counts, was sentenced to six years in prison today.
When the Grayson County District Attorney's Office investigated Green, they found out he was disbarred after he stole the money, but continued to present himself as a practicing attorney.
Green faced a maximum of ten years in prison.
