BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - A lawyer who cheated his clients will pay for his crime with prison time. Thomas Wojciechowski, who worked for Bouvier Partnership, LLP in the Main Place Tower building downtown, received two to six years behind bars during sentencing Tuesday.
He admitted he stole more than $300,000 from clients between March 2006 and July 2012, that was owed to them, and then put the money into his personal accounts.
He pleaded guilty to multiple charges of grand larceny, tax evasion and tax fraud in May.
Victim Donald Miller said, "I've known him for 40 years, the past 20 years we have fished together, he stayed with me down in Florida. I never suspected he was stealing my money."
Prosecutors also say the 66-year-old lawyer from Orchard Park Wojciechowski failed to pay state income tax.
