Indianapolis attorney resigns from bar

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The Indiana Supreme Court has accepted the resignation of the Indianapolis attorney who pleaded guilty earlier this year to theft from two clients.

Stacy H. Sheedy’s resignation became effective July 17, according to an order released by the justices.

Sheedy was charged with theft and forgery in January after an investigation revealed she misappropriated nearly $600,000 in funds from a guardianship account and a family trust account. She pleaded guilty to two Class C felony counts of theft and was sentenced to eight years in prison.

Sheedy was admitted to practice in 1996 and suspended in June 2011 for failing to cooperate with the Indiana Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission’s investigation of a grievance filed against her. She was reinstated on July 26, 2011.

As a result of her resignation, any pending disciplinary action against her has been dismissed. She can’t practice in Indiana for five years.

Sheedy is the second attorney in the last month to resign from the bar. William Conour tendered his resignation at the end of June. He faces a wire fraud charge in federal court in the Southern District of Indiana. He’s accused of misappropriating more than $2.5 million from clients over the course of nearly 12 years.

  1. Is it possible to amend an order for child support due to false paternity?

  2. He did not have an "unlicensed handgun" in his pocket. Firearms are not licensed in Indiana. He apparently possessed a handgun without a license to carry, but it's not the handgun that is licensed (or registered).

  3. Once again, Indiana's legislature proves how friendly it is to monopolies. This latest bill by Hershman demonstrates the lengths Indiana's representatives are willing to go to put big business's (especially utilities') interests above those of everyday working people. Maassal argues that if the technology (solar) is so good, it will be able to compete on its own. Too bad he doesn't feel the same way about the industries he represents. Instead, he wants to cut the small credit consumers get for using solar in order to "add a 'level of certainty'" to his industry. I haven't heard of or seen such a blatant money-grab by an industry since the days when our federal, state, and local governments were run by the railroad. Senator Hershman's constituents should remember this bill the next time he runs for office, and they should penalize him accordingly.

  4. From his recent appearance on WRTV to this story here, Frank is everywhere. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy, although he should stop using Eric Schnauffer for his 7th Circuit briefs. They're not THAT hard.

  5. They learn our language prior to coming here. My grandparents who came over on the boat, had to learn English and become familiarize with Americas customs and culture. They are in our land now, speak ENGLISH!!
