LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18)-- Former fugitive lawyer Eric C. Conn was back in federal court Thursday long enough for the judge to revoke his bond following an unusual couple of months culminating in an international manhunt and arrest.
The federal judge listened to both parties and revoked Conn's bond, citing the alleged fugitive's months-long debacle culminating in his capture at a Honduran Pizza Hut. In June, federal investigators say he cut off his ankle monitor and fled the country.
He had offered his law office in Stanville as bond and the US government is now taking the offices and the property on which they are located. A previous government document showed the land was valued at $650,000.
Conn pleaded guilty to a half-a-billion dollar social security scheme that resulted in multiple individuals losing their Social Security disability benefits.
He will be taken back to the Grayson County Detention Center Thursday night, where he has been held since his capture.
Conn also owes millions in criminal and civil penalties. His trial date on the charges related to the escape has been set for February 12.
