It's reported that Pearson sold a property on behalf of his client for $6.5 million and reportedly paid half of the money to the client, but failed to hand over the balance.

The 64 year old attorney, who has been charged with fraudulent conversion, is scheduled to appear in court on February 28.

He was released on bail amounting to $400-thousand.
