HAMMOND, Ind. (AP) — The owner of a northwest Indiana accounting firm accused of stealing about $660,000 from a physician’s account to gamble at local casinos is facing four federal charges of bank fraud.
The Times of Munster reports Jack Weichman was charged in a federal indictment unsealed Friday. He runs Weichman and Associates and MMDS, which handles medical billing for physicians. He was released on $200,000 bond.
Weichman’s attorney, Kerry Connor, says Weichman “looks forward to resolving an allegation made by a former client as he continues to provide excellent service to his current clients and the community.”
The government is seeking forfeiture of the money, or property obtained with the money, if Weichman is convicted.
