A former lawyer disbarred by the Law Society of Upper Canada last year is in hot water once again after police charged him with 30 criminal offences related to more than $1 million in missing funds.
“Since the summer of 2008, the London Police Service fraud section have received complaints in regards to the professional business practices of Alec John Dobson, a resident of London, with a legal practice that was located near the village of Dorchester,” police in London, Ont., said on Friday.
The charges include 11 counts of theft of entrusted monies over $5,000; 11 counts of breach of trust; and eight counts of uttering falsified documents. More than $1 million have gone missing, police said. None of the criminal allegations against him have been proven in court.
