WICHITA, Kan. (AP) A 69-year-old former Wichita attorney who stole hundreds of thousands of dollars from clients has been sentenced to three years in prison.
Christopher OBrien was sentenced Tuesday and was also ordered to pay $603,000 in restitution.
OBrien pleaded guilty in March to embezzling. Roger and Marcia Altis, of Eureka, told The Wichita Eagle that OBrien kept money they paid to him that was meant to pay their debt caused by a 2010 bankruptcy in their familys oil field business.
