A recent Action 16 Investigation focused on a man from Northumberland County and his former lawyer, who told him he was awarded $250,000 legal settlement.
But the man never got any money.
And now that lawyer Stephen Ellwood of Schuylkill County is charged with forgery.
It's some comfort Bob Bechtel of Locust Gap, who claims he was ripped off by Ellwood.
"I`m not going to see my justice, and I`m not going to see a dime," said Bechtel March 10th. "I bet my bottom dollar, I`m not going to see a dime."
Bechtel may still not see a dime, but he might get justice,
Ellwood was arrested.
Bechtel hired Ellwood in 2010 to sue his landlord for a neck injury he got at his former home in Kulpmont.
Stephen Ellwood is accused of making up a bogus document, that claimed a Northumberland County Judge Charles Saylor, signed off on that $250,000 settlement for Bechtel.
But the document was fake.
And court papers show Ellwood admitted to a grand jury, he forged the judge's signature.
Stephen Ellwood is due in court next week.
The forgery charge is a felony, and could also cost him his license to practice law.
