Disbarred WV Attorney Pleads to Embezzlement

A disbarred Morgantown attorney has pleaded guilty to embezzling from his clients.

C. Patrick Carrick faces up to 60 years in prison. The 58-year-old Carrick pleaded guilty Wednesday in Monongalia County Circuit Court to six counts of embezzlement by fiduciary.

State police say Carrick kept all the money from workers compensation claims instead of taking his fee and sending the remainder to clients.

According to a criminal complaint, the embezzlement totaled nearly $40,000. Carrick's attorney says the amount of restitution isn't yet official.

Carrick consented to voluntary disbarment in October.

A sentencing date hasn't been set.
