The lawyer was arrested on Tuesday in Sydney and charged with the fraud offenses of taking money through deception. He was refused bail and is set to appear tomorrow before Sydney’s Central Local Court, according to the Daily Mail.

One of the high end clients that the lawyer took advantage of is Bruce Gordon, owner of Win, and his son Andrew. The lawyer simply transferred money from their bank accounts to his own. If the bank called, questioning the transfer, the lawyer pretended to be the client over the phone.

Do you think the attorney should even have access to his client’s bank accounts? Share your thoughts with us in the comments below.
