An Amarillo attorney is accused of bilking a dozen clients out of at least $200,000.
A Randall County grand jury recently indicted David Neal Duncan, 40, who practiced law and lived in Amarillo, but now lists a Lakeview address. It's the latest in a series of criminal charges against the attorney since 2008.
Randall County Criminal District Attorney James Farren said Wednesday that additional charges could be possible as the investigation progresses.
According to the indictment, Duncan is alleged to have stolen money from 12 people.
"The people that are listed (in the indictment) are clients," he said. "They are people we are alleging had the right to those funds."
In August, Duncan was indicted for allegedly stealing more than $20,000 from a woman; the same woman also was listed in the Dec. 7 indictment. That same month, Duncan was charged with forgery after he allegedly added his name to a $100,000 check presented to Happy State Bank.
Prosecutors also are seeking to have revoked a deferred sentence of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Duncan was given 10 years' deferred adjudication in April for hitting a man with his hand and "repeatedly" slamming the unconscious man's head into a concrete floor at a PetSmart in 2008.
Duncan also is serving three years' federal probation for taking a gun into Rick Husband Amarillo International Airport in his luggage in February. It was the second time he was detained for carrying a weapon there.
