Two attorneys were convicted last week in a scheme to fraudulently collect referral fees on tax shelters designed and marketed in conjunction with the defunct law firm Jenkens & Gilchrist. John B. Ohle III, who worked as a supervisor in the Chicago office of Bank One's "innovative strategies group" and helped design the shelters, was found guilty of wire and tax fraud conspiracy and two counts of tax evasion. William Bradley, a Louisiana attorney, was found guilty of wire and tax fraud conspiracy.
