Missing Fla. Lawyer Turns Himself In To FBI In Fraud Case
South Florida Crime
BOCA RATON (CBSMiami/AP) — A suspended Boca Raton attorney who disappeared with more than $3 million from his law firm’s client accounts has turned himself in to the FBI.
According to FBI officials in Miami, Timothy P. McCabe, 44, surrendered in West Palm Beach Thursday morning.
Federal agents filed a criminal complaint Wednesday against McCabe, charging him with wire and bank fraud.
McCabe’s wife said he went missing April 2. His partner said McCabe had financial problems.
Investigators have uncovered emails McCabe sent to his partner saying that he had committed unspecified wrongdoing. His wife told investigators her husband sent her an email saying he had made bad business decisions.
The Florida Supreme Court suspended McCabe’s license to practice law in April.
If anyone believes they have been a victim of McCabe, they are urged to contact their local FBI office in South Florida at (305) 944-9101.
