Local Attorney Sentenced For Fraud

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Six months after pleading guilty to embezzling nearly half a million dollars from clients, Jonathan McKee has been sentenced to 60 months in prison.

Prosecutors say the embezzling occurred while McKee was a general practice attorney in St. Louis County between 2007 and 2011.

When insurance companies mailed checks to McKee, payable to both he and his clients, McKee would often deposit the entire check in his own bank account rather than pay his client, according to prosecutors.
