A one-time attorney who admitted guilt when it came to stealing money from his clients is back on the Campbell County Criminal Court docket.
Mark Troutman, who pleaded guilty to two counts of attempted theft over $60,000 and two counts of attempted theft over $10,000 in Feb. 2017, is scheduled to appear in criminal court today for violating the terms of his probation.
Troutman was to pay one of his victims $4,207.04 restitution but has fallen behind his monthly $100 payments, according to a petition to revoke Troutman’s probation that was filed the Eighth Judicial District Attorney’s office on Aug. 15.
As of that filing, the 59-year old Troutman had paid $900 to his victim, but was $600 behind in payments.
Court sources said Troutman had a made a partial payment earlier this month, but remains delinquent on the payments.
In 2017, Troutman, who had been practicing law for over three decades, was given a 15-year probation term and 500 hours of community service after he pleaded guilty to an elaborate scheme in which he used client’s monies for debts other than their own.
If the court opts to revoke his probation, Troutman could serve the balance of his sentence in jail.
His law license was suspended indefinitely following his 2017 plea. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 09/24/2018-6AM)
