A Portland attorney who was recently disbarred has been indicted under accusations of stealing tens of thousands of dollars in client money.
Michael Robert Shinn, 62, was briefly booked into the Multnomah County jail system at 9:57 a.m. Monday, before being released pending trial. He was arraigned on one count of first-degree aggravated theft for allegedly stealing settlement money he negotiated for two clients, Eric Rhodes and Max Doblie.
The prominent personal-injury lawyer was disbarred in September, after a trial before a three-judge disciplinary panel for the Oregon Supreme Court. That ended his 36-year legal career.
