|Accused of Bilking|
A lawyer from Belfast accused of bilking two elderly clients of more than $300,000 has pled not guilty, according to a court clerk.
60-year-old William Dawson is accused of paying himself more than $150,000 from the bank account of an 86-year-old woman.
Court documents say Dawson is also accused of taking more than $135-,000 from a 98-year-old woman.
He’s accused of over-billing the clients, too.
Last year a probate judge removed Dawson from control of the accounts.
Both women have since died.
The Maine Supreme Court ruled last month Dawson can still practice law, but under strict conditions.
Dawson is charged with two counts of theft and two counts of misuse of entrusted property.
