Lawyer Pleads Guilty for Fraud in St. Louis Court

October 11, 2012

St. Louis, Missouri – A former attorney-adviser for the Social Security Administration (SSA) has pleaded guilty on Tuesday to two felony counts of theft of government property. He likewise admitted to defrauding the agency.

Prosecutors said that 37-year-old Robert Brauker had been cashing in disability checks from 1993 for “significant visual impairments”.

Reports added that Brauker withheld reporting any income from a job he had in 2003, as well as in 2008, when he worked following his graduation from the law school of the Michigan State University.

What tipped the agency of Bauker’s fraudulent act was when he submitted his resume to the SSA for an attorney-adviser post. His resume clearly stated that he was a sole practitioner for about 20 hours weekly following his graduation.

He was indicted last May 2 in U.S. District Court in St. Louis.
