Peiffer Rosca Wolf Investigating Frederick Mitchell “Mitch” McNab; the Former Houston County Attorney Pleaded Guilty to Misappropriating Worth of $10.5 million of Client Funds

stockbroker fraud attorneyThe Peiffer Rosca Wolf investment recovery lawyers are currently investigating Frederick Mitchell “Mitch” McNab, a former Houston County attorney who entered a mid-December guilty plea to misappropriating and misusing over ten million dollars of client funds, according to the Alabama Securities Commission.

McNabb pleaded guilty to 55 criminal charges in Houston County Circuit Court including 30 theft of property charges and 25 securities-related charges including sale of securities by an unregistered agent, sale of unregistered securities, acting as an unregistered investment adviser for compensation, securities fraud and, sadly, financial exploitation of an elderly person, according to Alabama Securities Commission documents being looked over by attorneys Alan Rosca and Joe Peiffer.

In addition, McNab has reportedly surrendered his passport and remains free on his original bond of $310,000.

Authorities Allege that McNabb Used Client Funds to Pay Previous Investors

Authorities report that from November 2002 to November 2013, McNab allegedly misappropriated and misused funds from multiple clients living in Houston and surrounding counties. In a classic Ponzi scheme litmus test, McNab used their money to pay his previous victims who believed their funds were secure in an account held or controlled by McNab and earning interest for the benefit of the victims.

McNab, according to authorities, was also accused of using client funds for unrelated personal expenses.

McNab does not have a clean sheet. He was previously arrested in 2013, and again in April, 2014 by Houston County law enforcement officials on felony theft by deception charges related to an earlier investigation conducted by the Dothan Police Department, sources in Texas have revealed.
