BAY CITY, Mich. (AP) - A lawyer who also served as president of the Bay County Bar Association has been charged with cashing a check intended for a client.

Kevin Rieman is charged with forgery and embezzlement between $1,000 and $20,000. His attorney, Thomas Loeb, tells The Bay City Times (https://bit.ly/1DgVgMD ) that Rieman is “saddened and humbled” by the allegations.

The 48-year-old Rieman appeared in court Wednesday. His former law partner, Matthew Reyes, contacted authorities after learning about a problem with a client’s $8,000 check.

Rieman has resigned as president of the Bay County Bar, a local group of lawyers and judges.
