ANNAPOLIS, Md. - A former Annapolis tax attorney has admitted stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from a client's estate.
Jerold K. Nussbaum pleaded guilty in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court on Friday to stealing more than $300,000 from the estate of Norma Gunther and using the funds for himself.
Prosecutors say Gunther's daughter hired Nussbaum and turned everything over to him after her mother died.
They say he properly handled some of the money, but misappropriated and stole just under $308,000 from April 2005 to February 2006. Prosecutors say he also forged Gunther's name on two checks.
The Capital of Annapolis reports that the 60-year-old Nussbaum, who was disbarred in 2007, faces up to 15 years in prison. He's scheduled for sentencing on March 22. Prosecutors are also seeking restitution. ( http://bit.ly/zFGZXE)
