Dothan Attorney Sentenced For Stealing Millions From Clients Assigned Work Release
A former Dothan attorney sentenced to prison for stealing more than $10 million from his clients has been assigned to work release duty just months after his conviction.
Frederick “Mitch” McNab has been transferred from state prison in Montgomery to the Lawrence County Jail, where he has been assigned work release duty, according to the Alabama Department of Corrections website.
McNab pleaded guilty in 2014 to more than 50 counts of theft charges and security violations. He was originally sentenced on February 20, 2015 to a 20-year split sentence, which would require McNab to serve at least five years in prison.
The Alabama Department of Corrections website describes McNab’s current confinement as Min-Comm with the following definition:
Minimum-community: This custody level is appropriate for those inmates who have demonstrated the ability to adjust to semi-structured environment and/or those inmates who are nearing the end of their incarceration in order to transition and reintegrate back into the community. Inmates in this custody are allowed gainful employment in the community on a full-time basis and will be supervised in community based facilities when not working.
McNab was convicted of stealing the money from 16 victims between 2002 and 2013. None of the money was recovered.
