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 O’Brien was sentenced Tuesday and was also ordered to pay $603,000 in restitution.

O’Brien pleaded guilty in March to embezzling. Roger and Marcia Altis, of Eureka, told The Wichita Eagle that O’Brien kept money they paid to him that was meant to pay their debt caused by a 2010 bankruptcy in their family’s oil field business.
