PHOENIX (AP) - A former Phoenix lawyer has been sentenced to 3 1/4 years in prison on convictions for fraud and theft involving $2.9 million stolen from clients to support a gambling habit.

A Maricopa County Superior Court judge sentenced 64-year-old Larry Dahl on Friday on Dahl’s June guilty pleas to fraud, theft and money laundering.

Other charges under a 20-count indictment were dismissed under a plea agreement with the state Attorney General’s Office.

Attorney General Mark Brnovich said Dahl abused a position of trust.

According to Brnovich’s office, Dahl embezzled money from clients’ accounts by writing checks payable to himself and moving money between accounts to make it appear they had balances.

Dahl was disbarred in 2006.
