Wisconsin ex-attorney found guilty of embezzlement

A jury in Dunn County, Wisconsin, found 55-year-old former Menomonie lawyer William Lamb guilty on charges of felony embezzlement and forgery on Friday, July 17.

Members of the jury – five men and seven women – sided with assistant attorney general Annie Jay, who claimed that Lamb signed Miller’s name on an insurance check worth $10,500 and took the money for himself. Jay told the jury that Lamb’s chaotic financial life and problems with alcohol motivated his crimes. Lamb is facing up to 16 years in prison and a $35,000 fine.
