34-Count Indictment Won’t Stop Accountant from Serving His Clients: Lawyer

Jack Weichman, CPA has been indicted on 34 criminal charges ranging from bank fraud to money laundering to filing false tax returns, among others. His attorney, for one, is flabbergasted by this situation: 

In a statement issued Thursday morning, Weichman's attorney, Theodore Poulos, said "we are deeply disappointed and, quite frankly, appalled that the government has decided to bring these additional trumped up charges against Mr. Weichman, especially the additional charges relating to 'Doctor B.' Jack Weichman didn't do anything wrong and we are going to prove it in court."

Be that as it may, Poulos allows for the possibility that his his client isn't perfect; however, he's still a stand-up guy who is committed to client service:  

"We do not dispute that some mistakes could have been made. But Mr. Weichman always acted honestly and in good faith in the interest of his clients. He will continue to do so," said Poulus in the statement.

Don't let the bastards get you down, Jack.
