Indiana lawyer’s license suspended after pleading guilty of fraud

A license suspension was ordered for an Indiana attorney who pleaded guilty to scamming-related charges, Indy Star reported on June 23.

Reports said Carmel lawyer 70-year-old Charles Blackwelder is currently serving a prison term of four years after pleading guilty to four counts of “Class B” felonies for defrauding the savings of elderly. Blackwelder, who was formally charged in 2014, received his sentencing three months ago. Upon Blackwelder’s conviction, the Indiana Supreme Court decided to suspend his lawyer’s license. State documents revealed that Blackwelder started his law profession in 1978.
