A Pennsylvania lawyer was indicted Thursday on charges of embezzling more than $1.5 million from real estate clients and the heirs of estates he was handling by transferring their funds to his own personal bank account -- sometimes forging his clients' signatures on checks. Prosecutors claimed that attorney Michael D. Kasprenski, 43, used some of the stolen money to buy a vacation home in Nova Scotia and to pay boarding costs for his horse.
