Grand jury indicts Henderson lawyer on theft, exploitation charges

Henderson personal injury lawyer William K. Errico has been indicted on dozens of charges in connection with the theft of more than a half-million dollars from his clients, prosecutors said Friday.

A Clark County grand jury indicted Errico, who is free on $100,000 bail, on 17 counts of theft and 17 counts of exploitation of the elderly and/or vulnerable.

Between July 2007 and May 2011, prosecutor J.P. Raman said, Errico stole $162,062.70 out of a $300,000 insurance settlement he won for Deeann Clark, an elderly woman.

The complaint and a Las Vegas police report of the investigation into Errico’s activities also detailed the theft of more than $462,166.15 from another client, Wilfred Bosserman, who was severely injured and institutionalized following an automobile accident. The money was stolen between July 2009 and February 2012 from a $1 million settlement Errico had obtained for Bosserman.

During the investigation, Bosserman’s mother secretly recorded a meeting she had with Errico at his law office to complain about his handling of the insurance settlement. Metro police Intelligence detectives followed her to the office and remained nearby until she came outside.

Errico was initially arrested in May 2014 on two counts of theft, one count of elderly explotation and one count of explotation of a vulnerable person. Raman said prosecutors since found more money that they believe Errico stole.
