Conour, government agree to sale of assets

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Convicted former attorney William Conour’s possessions in his foreclosed Carmel home, including original artwork and a collection of premium wine and champagne, could be sold with proceeds directed toward a court fund established for victim restitution, according to a joint motion.

If approved by Chief Judge Richard Young of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana, the assets would be “turned over to the United States Marshal’s Service and/or the Federal Bureau of Investigation to be sold, post-sentencing, in a commercially reasonable manner.”

Proceeds would “be applied to any financial monetary penalties assessed against” Conour, according to the motion signed by Conour and federal prosecutor Jason Bohm. The motion also says Conour’s 25-room home is being foreclosed and utilities disconnected.

Once a leading personal-injury and wrongful-death attorney, Conour pleaded guilty July 15 to a federal charge of wire fraud that carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison. The government alleges he defrauded at least 25 clients of more than $4.5 million.

Conour is being held in the Marion County Jail pending sentencing, scheduled for Oct. 17.

The joint motion also includes an inventory of assets the government would sell, but no estimated value. Highlights of the nine-page inventory include several original oil paintings by master Indiana artist C.W. Mundy and a collection of more that 275 bottles of premium wine and champagne, some of which are valued in the hundreds of dollars per bottle.

The inventory also includes household furnishings and a range of items from eight Cryptex Security Boxes to bar accessories including a shuffleboard table and a Golden Tee arcade-style golf video game.

  • SHUFFLEBOARD-NO SURPRISE THERE! HOW ABOUT TIDDLYWINKS?
    SHUFFLEBOARD is almost as shameful as stealing. What could be more ignominious than having the whole world know you like shuffleboard! But for someone that has no sense of shame, Conour will not understand the opprobrium he deserves from this disclosure. Urban Dictionary says it best: 'shuffleboard Once upon a time white people played a game called shuffle board at racially segregated country clubs. When most country clubs became desegregated, the white people stopped playing the game because it was too embarrassing for anyone outside their imagined aristocracy to know about. 'Hubert: Mildred would you like to play some shuffleboard. Mildred: That would be swell Hubert.' ' That horse-farm that Carmel housewife had, were any of those horses polo horses? Jesse Jackson, Jr. requested a few specific federal prisons. Sir William could do likewise, federal ones with shuffleboard polo, etc. Englewood Federal Correctional Institution has pool, ping-pong and foosball. The population of this luxury prison is low and the facility is less than 20 years old, giving you plenty of elbow room to enjoy your stay. No reason to have to mingle with the riffraff if you don't have to. Squirrel

  1. Did someone not tell people who have access to the Chevy Volts that it has a gas engine and will run just like a normal car? The batteries give the Volt approximately a 40 mile range, but after that the gas engine will propel the vehicle either directly through the transmission like any other car, or gas engine recharges the batteries depending on the conditions.

  2. Catholic, Lutheran, even the Baptists nuzzling the wolf! http://www.judicialwatch.org/press-room/press-releases/judicial-watch-documents-reveal-obama-hhs-paid-baptist-children-family-services-182129786-four-months-housing-illegal-alien-children/ YET where is the Progressivist outcry? Silent. I wonder why?

  3. Thank you, Honorable Ladies, and thank you, TIL, for this interesting interview. The most interesting question was the last one, which drew the least response. Could it be that NFP stamps are a threat to the very foundation of our common law American legal tradition, a throwback to the continental system that facilitated differing standards of justice? A throwback to Star Chamber’s protection of the landed gentry? If TIL ever again interviews this same panel, I would recommend inviting one known for voicing socio-legal dissent for the masses, maybe Welch, maybe Ogden, maybe our own John Smith? As demographics shift and our social cohesion precipitously drops, a consistent judicial core will become more and more important so that Justice and Equal Protection and Due Process are yet guiding stars. If those stars fall from our collective social horizon (and can they be seen even now through the haze of NFP opinions?) then what glue other than more NFP decisions and TRO’s and executive orders -- all backed by more and more lethally armed praetorians – will prop up our government institutions? And if and when we do arrive at such an end … will any then dare call that tyranny? Or will the cost of such dissent be too high to justify?

  4. This is easily remedied, and in a fashion that every church sacrificing incense for its 501c3 status and/or graveling for government grants should have no problem with ..... just add this statue, http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Capitoline_she-wolf_Musei_Capitolini_MC1181.jpg entitled, "Jesus and Cousin John learn to suckle sustenance from the beloved Nanny State." Heckfire, the ACLU might even help move the statue in place then. And the art will certainly reflect our modern life, given the clergy's full-bellied willingness to accede to every whim of the new caesars. If any balk, just threaten to take away their government milk … they will quiet down straightaway, I assure you. Few, if any of them, are willing to cross the ruling elite as did the real J&J
