TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — A disbarred lawyer has been convicted of stealing more than $1.5 million overall from five clients, including the trust fund of a young boy whose father died in a workplace accident.

Joseph Talafous Jr. was convicted Wednesday on numerous counts of theft, misapplication of entrusted property and filing fraudulent state income tax returns. He faces several decades in prison when he's sentenced Feb. 16.
