NORRISTOWN, Pa. — Prosecutors say additional charges have been filed against a disbarred Pennsylvania attorney accused of stealing from special needs clients whose money he was supposed to manage.

Patrick Bradley was arrested in April and charged with stealing nearly $147,000 from his clients.

At the time, Bradley was accused of stealing more than $116,000 from the trust accounts of five clients, then also taking nearly $31,000 for legal work he never did for seven other special needs clients.

Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele announced on Friday that five additional victims have been found. He says the 45-year-old Bradley is charged with stealing nearly $14,000 from those former clients.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for Bradley, who was disbarred last September.

He’s been released on $50,000 bond and a preliminary hearing is set for Aug. 22.
