Conour has until week’s end to recoup missing assets

Former personal injury attorney William Conour on Monday was granted a few more days to comply with a court order to reacquire assets he dissipated in violation of bond conditions pending his federal wire fraud trial.

Conour has through Friday to reacquire and place back in his possession an array of assets that federal authorities could not locate during a recent re-inventory of his home and law office. Richard Young, chief judge for the U.S. District Court of the Southern District of Indiana, had ordered agents to re-inspect Conour’s property to assess how much was gone after a federal prosecutor asked Young to revoke Conour’s bond.

Conour is accused of defrauding more than 25 clients of at least $4.5 million. After his arrest in April 2012, he was ordered not to dissipate property federal agents inventoried.

On May 10, Young granted Conour seven days to reacquire the missing assets, but Conour’s federal public defender, James Donahoe, asked for more time and the government didn’t object. Young issued an order Monday giving Conour through Friday to resecure missing assets.

Donahoe “represented that most of the missing assets were transferred to (Conour’s) ex-wife pursuant to an uncontested divorce decree,” Young wrote in the May 10 entry. “…(T)he inventoried assets were not to be transferred without permission of the court.”

Weeks after Conour was charged and bond conditions set, his then-wife Jennifer Conour filed a divorce action in Kosciusko County. In December, a judge in Warsaw approved a dissolution of marriage that divided the couples’ assets, awarding Jennifer a Sheridan horse farm, among other things.

Conour’s trial is scheduled for Sept. 9.
