Attorney charged with stealing investment

May 29, 2008

Bloomington attorney Phillip Chamberlain was arrested last night and charged with five felony counts for allegedly stealing money from a client instead of investing the money in a golf course project and building a house in Lawrence County.

Indiana Secretary of State Todd Rokita said today Chamberlain offered to invest the money as an alternative to a plan by the client to invest in rental properties.

The client, he said, loaned the money to Chamberlain, but Chamberlain stole a "large portion."

Rokita didn't identify the client.
