Lawyer Indicted on Charges of Felony Theft by Conversion

An Early County lawyer is indicted for stealing more than $100,000 from the trust fund of an incapacitated girl he was hired to protect.

44-year old Thomas Sasser the Third was indicted by the Early County grand jury Tuesday afternoon on charges of felony theft by conversion.

Prosecutors say Sasser was stealing money from the trust fund of 14 year old Ashley James who was burned in a murder attempt when she was three years old.

Dougherty D.A. Greg Edwards said "It was noticed by persons who were also involved with maintaining the child's welfare."

To: Attorney Thomas Sasser the Third

How low can a person, for God's sake a lawyer in a position of trust sink?

You set a new level for others in positions of trust to achieve.

Stealing from not just an incapacitated person but an incapacitated child?

There are no words to describe how filthy Thomas Sasser is.

Please follow this story and let us all celebrate when Sasser gets the book thrown at him.

Hats off to those who noticed the theft and reported the thief, Sasser.

At least Ashley James had some good people around her.

I hope the judge handling this case takes everything away from Thomas Sasser and then sends him off to prison for the rest of his life.
