Solicitor pleads guilty to aggravated fraud and fraudulently falsifying records - 22 June 2017

A 41-year-old solicitor from Brisbane pleaded guilty today in the Supreme Court to one count of aggravated fraud and eight counts of fraudulently falsifying records following a Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC) investigation into a Brisbane law firm.

Timothy Vincent Charles Meehan pleaded guilty to the nine charges after an ex-officio indictment was presented in the Supreme Court today by the Director of Public Prosecutions.

The charges relate to the dishonest application of monies in excess of $30,000 belonging to Bosscher Lawyers Pty Ltd and for fraudulently falsifying costs agreements and tax invoices.

Meehan was remanded in custody and is expected to be sentenced in the Supreme Court on 13 July 2017.

The CCC is continuing to investigate suspected criminal activity within elements of the legal profession in Queensland.

As this investigation remains ongoing and this matter is now before the court, the CCC is unable to comment further.
