BG Attorney Convicted of $435,000 Theft

(Bowling Green, OH) A former Bowling Green attorney is convicted of stealing more than $400,000 from a client’s trust fund-- presumably to pay off his heavy debts. 

A jury convicted 40-year old Robert Searfoss III of Perrysburg on all 14 counts, including corruption, money laundering, and theft. 

Prosecutors told jurors Searfoss used the money to pay off back taxes, child support, and a home loan. 

The defense claimed the former lawyer borrowed the money and intended to pay it back with interest to shield his client's assets from his ex-wife.
