Dothan attorney who stole over $10 million released from prison

By  | 

Dothan, AL (WTVY)-- A Dothan attorney who stole over $10 million from his clients is out of prison after serving five years.

Dothan attorney Mitch McNab is led from courtroom after a judge sentenced him to prison.

Frederick Mitchell “Mitch” McNab was released Tuesday from Kilby Correctional Facility in Montgomery County.

He embezzled much of that money in investment schemes, though he had no license to sell securities.

In one case, he stole at least $200,000 that had been left to care for a paraplegic.

After bilking at least 16 victims, he pleaded guilty to more than 50 charges and, in 2015, a judge sentenced him to serve five years, followed by 15 years probation. That sentence came despite objections from prosecutors who hoped for 20 years behind bars.

None of his victims expect to recoup their money though the judge ordered McNab to pay restitution.

The Alabama Bar Association has revoked his law license.

WTVY will air an investigative report, the $10 Million Con Man, this Sunday at 10 pm. It will include interviews with his victims and prosecutors.
