Extortion by Lawyer

A Lexington lawyer waived his competency hearing, SC Layer’s Weekly reports. Richard Breibart is accused of extorting over $1 million from his clients by intimidating them with criminal charges or non-existent civil penalties. Indictments indicate at least three people who emptied their bank accounts to give to Breibart.  Breibart was ordered by a judge to have a mental evaluation last year, but has since waived his right to a competency hearing.  His lawyers say that he may have been insane at the time of the alleged crimes.
