Jury convicts disbarred northern Indiana lawyer of forging other attorneys’ names on documents


MISHAWAKA, Indiana — Jurors have convicted a disbarred northern Indiana attorney of forging the names of other lawyers on court documents.

The St. Joseph County jury returned guilty verdicts Wednesday against 47-year-old Rod Sniadecki on three felony counts of forgery.

The South Bend Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1eHYFGU ) Sniadecki’s former legal assistant testified she forged the signatures and faked information in a tax return to secure a mortgage on his South Bend office.

Defense attorney Len Zappia argued the assistant did so without Sniadecki’s knowledge to keep the office running while he was gone.

The Indiana Supreme Court suspended Sniadecki in 2007 for starting a relationship with a woman whose divorce he was handling and lying about it. He was disbarred in 2010 for the forgery case.

    Good now if he can just be so kind as to burn in hell, then true justice would be done seeing that he seems to have broken on of the 10 commandment "Thou Shalt Not Bear False Witness Against Thy Neighbor".Which is essentially what you are doing when you commit forgery as it is a sworn statement, but then I suspect with greed being the motivation he probably considered that a minor issue at the time.So whats braking an extra Commandant or two between friends..!!
