A request to dismiss charges against disbarred attorney Eric C. Conn that could carry a cumulative 255-year sentence should be denied, a federal magistrate judge has recommended.
Conn, 58, admitted taking part in a conspiracy in which he put false evidence of clients’ physical or mental disabilities in their claims, paid medical professionals to rubber-stamp claims with little scrutiny, and bribed a Social Security judge to approve them.
However, more charges are pending, and those are the subject of U.S. Magistrate Judge Robert E. Wier’s ruling.
