Fugitive Kentucky attorney to be returned to US after Honduras arrest

Kentucky lawyer arrested in Honduras

He was arrested by Honduras' Technical Agency for Criminal Investigation while leaving a restaurant in La Ceiba.

He had been on the run since June 2.

The judge, David Daugherty, pleaded guilty to taking illegal gratuities and was sentenced to four years in prison, while the psychologist, Alfred Bradley Adkins, who was found guilty, was sentenced to 25 years for fraud and other crimes.

Police reportedly learned of Conn's location after he connected to the restaurant's wi-fi.

Eric Conn escaped house arrest in Lexington six months ago before heading to New Mexico.

Conn was sentenced to 12 years in prison in absentia. "He let people like my husband have trust in him, and he let that down".

A lawyer has reportedly been captured in Honduras after fleeing the United States to avoid sentencing for bribing an administrative law judge to obligate the government to pay more than $550 million in lifetime disability payments. "He refused to do so". A conspiracy unraveled that resulted in another indictment against a co-worker that allegedly helped plot his escape and tested border crossings.

Conn built the third-largest disability practice in the plastering his face on billboards across Eastern Kentucky and promoting his business at events using a team of young women he called "Conn's Hotties".

Conn, of Pikeville, Kentucky, participated in a scheme between 2004 and 2016 that involved submitting thousands of falsified medical documents to the U.S. Social Security Administration, U.S. prosecutors have said.

Conn's capture was cheered by his former clients and their families, who have struggled to make ends meet while fighting to keep their Social Security disability checks. "I never thought they would catch him". Shortly thereafter, Conn was sitting a table across from investigators in Honduras.

The disgraced Lexington lawyer had been on the run since June 2, when he cut off and ditched his Global Positioning System ankle monitor along Interstate 75, days before he was scheduled to testify against a co-defendant and be sentenced for his role in a $550 million fraud investigation. White said they will enter a standard not guilty plea.
