A Baltimore lawyer has been indicted and arrested on charges of stealing more than $300,000 awarded to clients in medical malpractice and accident cases, the city state's attorney's office announced yesterday.
The indictment, handed down Tuesday by a grand jury, charges Raymond A. Tubman, 35, with two counts of felony theft and one count of forgery. Mr. Tubman, who lives in the Harbor Courts condominiums on Lee Street and has an office in the 1100 block of N. Calvert St., surrendered yesterday at the state's attorney's office. He is scheduled to be arraigned Sept. 9.
If convicted of the charges, Mr. Tubman would face a maximum penalty of 40 years in prison, State's Attorney Stuart O. Simms said.
