Former Flint attorney winding up prison term for embezzlement

Former Flint attorney Shannon Pitcher is about to be released from state prison, two years after she admitted to embezzling money from the vulnerable clients she was supposed to protect, reports

A spokesman for the Michigan Department of Corrections confirmed Pitcher has been granted conditional parole effective Oct. 20, closing a chapter in one of the most sensational white collar criminal cases in recent Genesee County history.

Pitcher’s release comes even as the county court system continues to grapple with which of more than two dozen alleged victims are still owed money investigators seized from Pitcher after her 2006 arrest.

Pitcher will have served slightly more than her minimum 23-month sentence but far less than her maximum 10 years when she is freed. …

David Grant, her attorney in the embezzlement case, said he’s unsure what the future holds for the former honor student from Saginaw Nouvel Catholic Central High School.

“She was talking about maybe going back to school,” said Grant. “The important thing is for her to be able to take care of her children.”
