KNOXVILLE – Special Agents from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation obtained indictments today for an attorney accused of taking money from a trust account intended for his clients for his personal use.
At the request of 8th District Attorney General Jared Effler, TBI Agents began investigating Conrad Mark Troutman on January 25th. During the course of the investigation, Agents developed information that on several occasions between 2014 and 2016, Troutman unlawfully spent funds held in a trust account for his clients without their consent or knowledge. The investigation further revealed Troutman did not return the funds, concealed their use, and utilized additional client funds to replace previously used funds.
Today, the Campbell County Grand Jury returned indictments, charging the 57-year-old with one count of Theft over $250,000, two counts of Theft over $60,000, and one count of Theft over $10,000. Tonight, Troutman turned himself into the Campbell County Jail, from which he was released after posting $50,000 bond. Troutman’s law license is currently suspended.
