Greedy lawyer facing prison
A HIGH- PROFILE Brisbane solicitor will likely spend more than a year behind bars after pleading guilty to taking hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash payments from his clients.
Tim Meehan is believed to have pocketed up to $ 500,000 over four years as part of a scheme that allowed him to avoid his tax, bankruptcy and reporting obligations. Meehan confessed to the Crime and Corruption Commission a month after he was sacked from his job in August 2016. Justice Roslyn Atkinson will hand down her decision today.
