Kenota Pulliam, 42, is charged with 11 counts of theft, with a bond amount listed at $1,787.50 per count.
In court today for a hearing on a bank fraud charge from March 2011, Pulliam was arrested today on theft charges that stemmed back to when she practiced law in Louisiana and took money from clients, but failed to perform the work.
The Louisiana Supreme Court suspended Pulliam from practicing law in September 2009, ordering the Offices of Disciplinary Council to appoint trustees to protect the interests of her clients. In June 2010, the high court granted Pulliam's request to permanently resign from the Louisiana bar in lieu of discipline.
That did not, however, end Pulliam's legal problems over former clients, which culminated in her arrest today. Although the Louisiana Client Assistance Foundation paid her former clients a total of $59,309.00, Pulliam is still liable for that amount.
