The Relatives are Restless it may be Because the Lawyers are Larcenous.

Here in the last weeks of 2008, we’re going through our files trying to catch up reporting on cases that have come in to us.

See the EoD News Archive for a tale about a former Toledo city councilwoman and attorney who will be sentenced in January for theft of between $500,000 and $1 million. The stolen funds appear to have come from numerous estates handled by Karyn McConnell-Hancock. This woman was charged earlier this year for faking her own kidnapping. Hancock’s husband and father, a Toledo Municipal Court judge, received national attention after an appearance on Good Morning America in which they cited a case related to the father/judge as potential motivation for the abduction.

Truth is stranger than fiction. And we wonder why our legal system is dysfunctional?
