A lawyer in Cherry Hill, NJ, charged with stealing $1 million from a client was apprehended [11/9] in Alabama after an apparent attempt to flee prosecution.
Michael Kwasnik, 42, was arrested by local police in Dothan, Ala., on an arrest warrant stemming from Monday’s indictment, according to Peter Aseltine, spokesman to state Attorney General Paula Dow.
Kwasnik was travelling by taxi to a bus station when the driver, suspicious of Kwasnik, alerted local police, Aseltine says. Police stopped Kwasnik at the bus station and arrested him upon discovering the outstanding warrant, Aseltine says, noting that Kwasnik was carrying several thousand dollars in cash, prepaid cell phones and his passport.
“It would appear to us that he was on the lam from our charges,” Aseltine told the Law Journal.
