Longtime Levy County attorney is accused of stealing from his clients' funds
It's a lot of legal trouble for a longtime attorney in Levy County who was arrested Wednesday after investigators accused him of stealing from his clients' trust funds.
Investigators started looking into Gregory Beauchamp of Chiefland after clients issued complaints to the Florida bar.
A 7-month investigation led to the 71-year-old's arrest on two counts of larceny of more than $20,000.
Deputies say he misappropriated funds in trust funds he managed. In August, he was disbarred.
Beauchamp has posted bond.
