Former attorney gets probation in fraud case

Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

A former attorney who pleaded guilty to mail fraud last year was sentenced to 3 years probation Tuesday by a federal judge.

The charge was brought in October 2008 in the U.S. District Court, Southern District of Indiana, Indianapolis Division, against Brian L. Nehrig, Fishers, following an FBI investigation into Nehrig's work on foreclosures in 2005 and 2006. He worked as a foreclosure attorney for Citifinancial and would submit bids at sheriff's sales for foreclosed homes. The investigation found Nehrig sometimes submitted inflated bids and had arrangements with friends and associates to buy the properties. He didn't tell Citifinancial about the arrangements and kept the profits, a $66,000 loss for Citifinancial.

Nehrig faced up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine for the mail fraud charge. He resigned from the bar in 2007.

In addition to the three years of probation, District Judge Sarah Evans Baker sentenced Nehrig to 6 months home confinement, and that he perform 8 hours of community service each month while he is on probation. He also was fined $2,500.

  1. I will be filing a lawsuit in Tippecanoe County for so many violations in a case we became involved in, including failure to contact through mail, Violation of 4th Amendment rights, Violation of Civil Rights, and so on. Even the Indiana Ombudsmen Bureau found violations and I have now received the report and they are demanding further training in Tippecanoe County. I am going to make sure they follow through!!!

  3. I thought the purpose of the criminal justice center was to consolidate all the criminal services and get them out of downtown to clean up the place. Why in the HELL are the civil courts moving? What a burden to all the downtown law firms. Now we all get to work downtown, but then have to get in a car and COMMUTE to court? Who approved this idiocy?

  4. I drive through the neighborhood whenever I go to the City-County Building or the Federal Courthouse. The surrounding streets are all two way with only two lanes of traffic, and traffic is very slow during rush hour. I hope that enough money has been allocated to allow for improvement of the surrounding streets.

  5. I have had an ongoing custody case for 6 yrs. I should have been the sole legal custodial parent but was a victim of a vindictive ex and the system biasedly supported him. He is an alcoholic and doesn't even have a license for two yrs now after his 2nd DUI. Fast frwd 6 yrs later my kids are suffering poor nutritional health, psychological issues, failing in school, have NO MD and the GAL could care less, DCS doesn't care. The child isn't getting his ADHD med he needs and will not succeed in life living this way. NO one will HELP our family.I tried for over 6 yrs. The judge called me an idiot for not knowing how to enter evidence and the last hearing was 8 mths ago. That in itself is unjust! The kids want to be with their Mother! They are being alienated from her and fed lies by their Father! I was hit in a car accident 3 yrs ago and am declared handicapped myself. Poor poor way to treat the indigent in Indiana!
