Omaha Lawyer Sentenced for Stealing Social Security Payments
Omaha, NE - An Omaha attorney will serve 18 months in prison for stealing social security payments from her clients.
United States District Judge Lyle Strom sentenced Kim Erwin-Loncke Thursday.
Erwin-Loncke served as a legal guardian for clients who lived in nursing homes. She arranged to receive those clients' social security checks. She then deposited that money into her own bank accounts.
The federal investigation showed she took money from twelve clients over a two-year period, totaling more than $92,000.
Erwin-Loncke has been disbarred by the Nebraska Bar Association.
