A federal indictment in the Texarkana Division of the Eastern District of Texas accuses a Frisco, Texas, lawyer of wire fraud involving two Wake Village residents and a Miller County resident.
David Allan Krueger Jr. is the only defendant named in the indictment which was handed down in August and unsealed Thursday. Krueger’s attorney, Johannes Massar of Garland, Texas, waived Krueger’s appearance at arraignment and entered a not guilty plea for Krueger. Records show Krueger currently lives in Colorado.
According to his indictment, Krueger convinced his clients to invest in a misting fan business and created phony documents to make his scheme appear legitimate.
The indictment states that the government is seeking a judgment of $501,200 from Krueger.
“Beginning on a date unknown but no later than February 2014 and continuing thereafter through at least September 2015, defendant David A. Krueger, Jr. devised a scheme to defraud current and former clients of his law practice and to obtain money by means of false and fraudulent pretenses, representations, and promises,” the indictment states.
According to the State Bar of Texas website, Krueger is currently ineligible to practice law in the state of Texas.
Krueger’s case is currently set for jury selection Jan. 27 before U.S. District Judge Robert Schroeder III in Texarkana.
