MANCHESTER TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) - Prosecutors in New Jersey say an elder law attorney, who previously had a radio show on topics relating to seniors, has been charged with stealing more than $1 million from several of his clients over a five-year period.

State Attorney General Christopher Porrino says attorney Robert Novy stole $1.2 million from at least four people between 2010 and 2015.

Authorities say some of the victims had Alzheimer’s disease. Others didn’t have family members to monitor their money.

Authorities say the 65-year-old Brick man, whose office is in Manchester Township, was arrested on Tuesday. Novy is charged with money laundering, theft by unlawful taking and misapplication of entrusted property.

Novy’s bail has been set at $500,000.

Novy’s attorney says his client denies the charges and plans to fight them.
