Doctor's woes. (Whispers).
Eubanks Welch Baker and Schulze LLP of Little Rock said it represented Jefferson, 56, in a case in which he faced felony charges involving allegations of insurance fraud, according to the firm's lawsuit filed in Pulaski County Circuit Court.
The state also was seeking to collect $64,000 in restitution from Jefferson.
Well, lawyers worked a deal to get two of the felony charges dropped and two charges reduced to misdemeanors.
Jefferson took the deal and was sentenced to probation for a year. Jefferson's restitution amount also was sliced to $41,440.
The firm also helped Jefferson keep his drug license, an important tool in his trade.
In exchange for the firm's services, Jefferson agreed to pay $25,000. Jefferson has come up with $1,200, but that's it, the lawsuit said.
Jefferson hasn't made a payment since February, and the firm filed the lawsuit to collect the rest of the money.
Jefferson couldn't be reached for comment.
