On Thursday, the state Department of Justice announced that the charges had been filed.
MADISON, Wis. (WEAU) -- A former attorney accused of forging a client's signature on a check and depositing it now faces criminal charges.
On Wednesday, prosecutors filed a criminal complaint in the case against William Lamb, 53, of Menomonie. Investigators say Lamb represented a man in a personal injury case, and received his client's settlement check for $10,500 in April 2008. He's accused of depositing it into his own personal account. The client didn't find out about the money until 2012, when he contacted his insurance company.
Lamb is scheduled to appear in Dunn County court on April 15.
