A judge in Norfolk has sentenced a disbarred attorney to 30 years in federal prison for defrauding clients and friends out of more than $8 million.
Forty-four-year-old Troy A. Titus wept in court Thursday as he tried to explain himself in front of U.S. District Judge Raymond A. Jackson and a courtroom filled with family and friends.
A federal jury in December convicted Titus of 33 felonies, finding that he had operated a Ponzi scheme that cost his victims around $8 million in losses. The government now says the total fraud amounted to nearly $12 million.
