Clayton, N.C. — A Clayton attorney has been disbarred and indicted on charges of stealing more than $1.1 million from her clients.
A Johnston County grand jury indicted Jennifer Green-Lee on Monday with 13 counts of embezzlement.
According to the indictments, she took the money from 10 clients between last March and May. Some of the clients are real estate developers and construction companies, while others are individuals.
Green-Lee couldn't be reached Wednesday for comment.
According to the North Carolina State Bar, she surrendered her law license after acknowledging that she had misappropriated client funds and was disbarred.
