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. I wonder if the USSR had electronic voting machines that changed the ballot after it was cast? Oh well, at least we have a free media serving as vicious watchdog and exposing all of the rot in the system! (Insert rimshot)

  2. Jose, you are assuming those in power do not wish to be totalitarian. My experience has convinced me otherwise. Constitutionalists are nearly as rare as hens teeth among the powerbrokers "managing" us for The Glorious State. Oh, and your point is dead on, el correcta mundo. Keep the Founders’ (1791 & 1851) vision alive, my friend, even if most all others, and especially the ruling junta, chase only power and money (i.e. mammon)

  3. Hypocrisy in high places, absolute immunity handed out like Halloween treats (it is the stuff of which tyranny is made) and the belief that government agents are above the constitutions and cannot be held responsible for mere citizen is killing, perhaps has killed, The Republic. And yet those same power drunk statists just reel on down the hallway toward bureaucratic fascism.

  4. Well, I agree with you that the people need to wake up and see what our judges and politicians have done to our rights and freedoms. This DNA loophole in the statute of limitations is clearly unconstitutional. Why should dna evidence be treated different than video tape evidence for example. So if you commit a crime and they catch you on tape or if you confess or leave prints behind: they only have five years to bring their case. However, if dna identifies someone they can still bring a case even fifty-years later. where is the common sense and reason. Members of congress are corrupt fools. They should all be kicked out of office and replaced by people who respect the constitution.

  5. If the AG could pick and choose which state statutes he defended from Constitutional challenge, wouldn't that make him more powerful than the Guv and General Assembly? In other words, the AG should have no choice in defending laws. He should defend all of them. If its a bad law, blame the General Assembly who presumably passed it with a majority (not the government lawyer). Also, why has there been no write up on the actual legislators who passed the law defining marriage? For all the fuss Democrats have made, it would be interesting to know if some Democrats voted in favor of it (or if some Republican's voted against it). Have a nice day.
