A Wichita, Kansas-based personal injury lawyer known for riding a bull in television advertisements has been charged with directing a software engineer to cyberattack websites such as Leagle.com and Ripoffreport.com that contained negative reviews of the lawyer.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Kansas announced the indictment on July 17 of Brad Pistotnik, a personal injury lawyer in Wichita who uses the nickname “The Bull” in connection with his TV ads. The indictment charges Pistotnik, 62, and computer software engineer David Dorsett, 36, with five counts each of computer fraud and two counts each of conspiracy.
