KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - A longtime Kansas City, Kansas, lawyer has been found guilty of misappropriating funds from a disabled man’s trust fund.

A Wyandotte County judge this week found Don Charles Bell guilty of felony mistreatment of a dependent adult and misdemeanor passing a worthless check.

The Kansas City Star reports (https://bit.ly/1kQztDp ) Ball’s license has been suspended by the Kansas Supreme Court.

Prosecutors say Ball managed the affairs of a man who has a disabling brain injury. The man had a trust and a probate judge ordered Ball to not spend trust proceeds without court approval.

When the court ordered Ball to pay out money in the trust, he wrote a $32,000 check that the bank rejected for insufficient funds.

Ball will be sentenced Feb. 26.
