Former Toledo attorney Karyn McConnell Hancock, 38, is heading to prison for four year. Hancock became infamous when she faked her own kidnapping. Now, she has been sentenced for stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from her clients. She is a former Democratic Toledo city councilman and the daughter of sitting Toledo Municipal Court Judge C. Allen McConnell.
Hancock was convicted of aggravated theft in November for stealing more than $624,000 from 23 clients over a period of nearly six years. She was found to be diverting money from the client escrow account for her personal use between 2002 and 2007.
She got off lightly in the bizarre kidnapping claim. She was sentenced two years of probation with a three-month jail sentence suspended, a $300 fine, and 40 hours of community service.
