Disbarred lawyer’s federal convictions upheld

Former lawyer Troy Titus, convicted in Norfolk federal court of mail and wire fraud, has lost his appeal in the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

Today the appellate court released a 31-page unpublished opinion that described Titus’s involvement in “an operation that bore the hallmarks of a Ponzi scheme,” and rejected his appellate claims that challenged pretrial, trial, and posttrial rulings by the district court.

Titus surrendered his law license after the Virginia State Bar began investigating him in 2005, in response to complaints from clients.
