Judge: Conour to stay behind bars before sentencing

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Former attorney William Conour will remain jailed pending his sentencing in a little more than two months, a federal judge has ruled.

Chief Judge Richard Young of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana on Monday denied Conour’s motion for release, indicating he will remain in custody of U.S. marshals pending sentencing on Oct. 17. Conour is being held in the Marion County Jail.

Conour pleaded guilty July 15 to government charges that he defrauded at least 25 personal-injury and wrongful-death clients of more than $4.5 million he received in negotiated settlements. He entered a plea a short time after he was jailed in June for dissipating assets in violation of terms of bond.

Young also on Aug. 1 approved an order clearing the way for Indiana University to deposit with the court $450,000 that Conour had donated to the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law, which since has excised the honorary naming of the William and Jennifer Conour Atrium.

  • Ms Ogynist
    Misogynist definition: 90% of UrbanDictionary.com male users. Back to the article above; finally the judge is denying a motion and letting Conour know he’s not special nor deserves special treatment…he’s just another convict.
  • HOUSEWIFEING-WHAT ATE THE DOCUMENTED FACTS?
    Housewife has been defined: "Housewife: An uneducated woman with no self-esteem and no life who thinks she has to devote herself to rearing children, her husband, the home and the pets." URBAN DICTIONARY If this does not fit [except for "uneducated"]90% of Carmel "stay at home moms" would be surprising. Not speaking of anyone in particular but Carmel h
    • Politically Correct
      Housewifing? But REALLY working not JUST Housewifing? All things considered, that’s probably as “politically correct” as a misogynist can get. Probably uneducated in other areas as well, you may want to look at documented facts before you make accusations and assumptions in a public forum…otherwise you look like a, what’s the politically correct term for it? Oh, yes…moron.
    • Er Allein ist Schuldig
      Conour’s latest motion is likely a harbinger of how his time will be spent in jail. And each new motion will probably put his unfortunate family back in the press, open to attacks from antagonists who have little understanding or sympathy of what he and his crimes did to his family members. From what has been reported and what is available in public records, he sent all properties into foreclosure and left nothing for his family but debt. A reporter should look into why the Disciplinary Commission allowed Conour to practice law after his illegal practices were reported. An attorney who worked with him reported him in 2008 and Conour’s frauds date back to at least 1999. I agree with Paul Ogden…that’s the red-flag that needs further investigation. And taking a quote from Ogen’s posting, “Throughout history, it has been the inaction of those who could have acted; the indifference of those who should have known better; the silence of the voice of justice when it matter most; that has made it possible for evil to triumph.” Haile Selassie.
    • RED FLAG IF EX-WIFE IS NOT WORKING!
      It is a big waving flying red flag if the ex-wife is not working [outside the home to be politically correct--but really working not just housewifing] but continuing her role as a Carmel housewife; then there is likelihood she is living on moneys acquired from Conour which were stolen and belong to clients/others. There were mentions in this paper that Conour had considered bankruptcy; no mention of Conour AND wife/ex-wife filing. I suggest that a reporter see if she has a real job.
      • HA! HA! CONOUR!
        Imperious, arrogant self-important William Conour can leave the house and Bentley and whatever to the squirrels and raccoons! Apparently he has already squirreled away his clients' money, likely in his divorce! Is anyone looking at ex-wife's or Conour's spawn's assets and the source of those assets? If it was clients' moneys or moneys or clients it should be restored to the clients. If it means taking things from a [former] domestic engineer [stay at home mom or whatever eupehemism for Carmel housewife who does not work] and horse farm manager and her kids, so be it. Conour can now use his time acclimating to being with the guys. Enjoy your time. Squirrel

      1. Compromising precious constitutional rights in order to protect them? Rather like the military intelligence slogan that the town had to be destroyed in order to save it. Looks like Joseph, Mary and Baby Jesus will have quite the eventful Boxing Day this year. Wise men will arrive to find no one to accept their gifts? Oh well, wisdom not all that desired this xmas anyway. Maybe the ACLU and Christian attorneys can work out a "three days every third year" visitation compromise and all of this messy litigation stuff can just be boxed up as well? It is an art form, now isn't it? Thomas More, a man of manifold compromises is undoubtedly cheering on wildly.

      2. From the MCBA: “This situation is not just about the death of Michael Brown, but the thousands of other African-Americans who are disproportionately targeted and killed by police officers.” The association said it was “saddened and disappointed” by the decision not to indict Ferguson police officer. HOPING that the MCBA will denouce the execution style killig of two NYC police officers this day, seemingly the act of one who likewise believes that the police are targeting blacks for murder and getting away with it. http://www.mediaite.com/online/two-nypd-cops-fatally-shot-in-ambush-in-brooklyn/ Pray this violence soon ends, and pray it stays far away from Indiana.

      3. "Am I bugging you? I don't mean to bug ya." If what I wrote below is too much social philosophy for Indiana attorneys, just take ten this vacay to watch The Lego Movie with kiddies and sing along where appropriate: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=etzMjoH0rJw

      4. I've got some free speech to share here about who is at work via the cat's paw of the ACLU stamping out Christian observances.... 2 Thessalonians chap 2: "And we also thank God continually because, when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as a human word, but as it actually is, the word of God, which is indeed at work in you who believe. For you, brothers and sisters, became imitators of God’s churches in Judea, which are in Christ Jesus: You suffered from your own people the same things those churches suffered from the Jews who killed the Lord Jesus and the prophets and also drove us out. They displease God and are hostile to everyone in their effort to keep us from speaking to the Gentiles so that they may be saved. In this way they always heap up their sins to the limit. The wrath of God has come upon them at last."

      5. 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.
