A disbarred northern Indiana attorney has been charged with forging names on legal documents and filing fraudulent tax returns while he was under suspension.
An initial hearing is scheduled for Monday in a St. Joseph County court for Rodney P. Sniadecki, who was disbarred by the Indiana Supreme Court in 2010. Sniadecki practiced law in Mishawaka and South Bend.
A grand jury indicted Sniadecki on Friday. The indictment alleges Sniadecki forged other lawyers' names on documents after he was suspended in 2007 and filed fraudulent tax returns while operating a mortgage brokerage.
Sniadecki surrendered at the county jail Friday and was released on $20,000 bond.
Sniadecki could not be reached for comment Monday because his phone number was unlisted.
