Former attorney sentenced in fraud case

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Former Fishers attorney Brian L. Nehrig was sentenced Tuesday in a federal court to three years probation following his guilty plea to mail fraud.

Nehrig, 43, worked as a foreclosure attorney for Citifinancial in 2005 and 2006, submitting bids at sheriff’s sales for foreclosed homes. Nehrig was required to submit the proceeds to the company if the home sold to a third party.

But, according to the charges, Nehrig sometimes submitted inflated bids and had arrangements with friends and associates to purchase the properties for a few thousand dollars more than the minimum bid requested by Citifinancial.

Nehrig did not send Citifinancial the profits, the court said, and determined the loss to Citifinancial to be $66,000. The company has been repaid through an insurance claim.

U.S. District Judge Sarah E. Barker, who sentenced Nehrig, also imposed six months of home confinement and required Nehrig to perform eight hours of community service per month for each of the 36 months he is on probation. He was fined $2,500.

Nehrig since has had his law license revoked.

The case resulted from an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

  1. Can your dog sign a marriage license or personally state that he wishes to join you in a legal union? If not then no, you cannot marry him. When you teach him to read, write, and speak a discernible language, then maybe you'll have a reasonable argument. Thanks for playing!

  2. Look no further than Mike Rowe, the former host of dirty jobs, who was also a classically trained singer.

  3. Current law states income taxes are paid to the county of residence not county of income source. The most likely scenario would be some alteration of the income tax distribution formula so money earned in Marion co. would go to Marion Co by residents of other counties would partially be distributed to Marion co. as opposed to now where the entirety is held by the resident's county.

  4. This is more same-old, same-old from a new generation of non-progressive 'progressives and fear mongers. One only needs to look at the economic havoc being experienced in California to understand the effect of drought on economies and people's lives. The same mindset in California turned a blind eye to the growth of population and water needs in California, defeating proposal after proposal to build reservoirs, improve water storage and delivery infrastructure...and the price now being paid for putting the demands of a raucous minority ahead of the needs of many. Some people never, never learn..

  5. I wonder if I can marry him too? Considering we are both males, wouldn't that be a same sex marriage as well? If they don't honor it, I'll scream discrimination just like all these people have....
