A federal grand jury has returned two indictments against disbarred Memphis attorney Keith L. Dobbs, charging him with 67 felony violations for misappropriating funds from 26 recipients of veterans benefits and nine Social Security recipients, the Daily Memphian reports. In his role as fiduciary, Dobbs allegedly used funds embezzled from the victims to pay personal obligations, such as credit card bills and rent, and to purchase items including a BMW automobile. Each violation of the two indictments is punishable, if convicted, by up to five years' imprisonment, a fine of up to $250,000 and a term of supervised release of no more than three years.
