McQuillan Pleads Guilty

A former Jackson County lawyer pleaded guilty as charged to embezzling about $800,000 from the estate of a veteran.

Richard McQuillan admitted to three counts of embezzling more than $20,000. His crimes are punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a fine of $15,000 or three times the stolen amount, whichever is greater.

McQuillan removed funds three times from the estate of Robert Howard, who died in December 2006, and converted the money to his own use.

Circuit Judge John McBain is to sentence him July 16.

McQuillan deserves the maximum punishment and I hope he gts it.

Honorable Circuit Judge John McBain:

Richard McQuillan deserves the harshest punishment which includes the maximum prison sentence, nothing less will be just or acceptable.

No mercy, McQuillan was on a crime spree; he knew what he was doing was wrong and a criminal act, again and again and again.

Each act of theft, McQuillan made the decision to take what is not his, worse than that, McQuillan was in a position of trust.

Please throw the book and your bench at this crook, he deserves that an more.

Thank you.

No, Anonymous 1: Richard McQuillan could get 10 years and a fine of $60K.

Now $60K sounds a whole lot better than $15K, doesn't it?

10 years, $60K fine, and the judge's book and bench is all fitting!
