A former Butler County lawyer will have another round of charges of stealing from a client.
Samuel J. Brydon, 56, was charged on Tuesday by Butler County detectives with theft. He is accused of taking money from the estate of Agnes Jablonski, 86, of Butler, who died in March 2009.
Brydon, who has been disbarred from practicing in Pennsylvania and federal court, could not be reached on Friday.
Detective Charles A. Barger said Jablonski’s son, Richard, hired Brydon to administer the estate and gave him a check for $81,000 — the value of the estate.
The trust account had a balance of $926 on Jan. 26, according to a criminal complaint.
“Checks from this account went to Mr. Brydon and other expenses, but none were used to pay the Jablonski estate,” Barger wrote in a criminal complaint.
