CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A former Clarksville attorney has been indicted on three counts of theft.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation announced that Carrie Gasaway was arrested Wednesday.

In a statement, the agency said it found Gasaway commingled funds between her attorney trust account and operating account from January 2014 through February 2015. Agents say they learned Gasaway did not disperse $45,831 owed to one client, and $2,000 for medical bills in the name of another client.

Authorities also say Gasaway kept $1,000 of trust money paid by a third client for costs related to a case.

Special agents began investigating Gasaway in August. She and law partner Fletcher Long operated a Clarksville law firm until July. Both were convicted of extortion in May.

It isn’t immediately clear if she has an attorney.
