Eric C Conn Requests Public Defender

Posted: Updated:

LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) - As former fugitive attorney Eric C Conn prepares to most likely lose his money and property in a settlement of fines, the attorney submitted a motion to request a public defender.

A guilty plea entered in a social security disability fraud scheme is the catalyst for a series of events that saw the former disability attorney owing millions in criminal and civil penalties.

Conn notoriously lived a lavish lifestyle with a large mansion and expensive cars in rural Eastern, Kentucky. His conviction in the multi-million dollar scheme caused that to all come crashing down.

Conn was captured after nearly six months on the run in a Pizza Hut in Honduras. In June, federal investigators say he cut off his ankle monitor and fled the country. 

He appeared in federal court Thursday to have his bond revoked and the seizure of his law offices in Stanville, Ky. A previous government document showed the land was valued at  $650,000.

In the motion filed Friday, Conn states, “First, the Defendant qualifies financially. He has no assets or resources, liquid or otherwise. The United States has obtained judgments against Defendant for restitution, fines, civil damages and bond forfeiture in the tens of millions of dollars” 

Conn further writes that his only income has been fee checks from Social Security, and those are now being taken by the government. He further says that all of his property has been seized, and the only remaining bank account he had was an anonymous account with the Bank of Guatemala. Conn writes that the account initally, "had $40,000. By time taken in custody, I was no longer able to withdraw money, so think it had been depleted (sic)."

Conn's current attorney is Scott White, he asked the court to continue to allow White to be his court-appointed attorney.
