Kenneth G. Reidenbach was charged today by superseding indictment with bankruptcy fraud, concealing assets during a bankruptcy proceeding, and embezzling from a bankruptcy estate, announced United States Attorney Zane David Memeger. According to the superseding indictment, Reidenbach, an attorney in Lancaster, represented an individual in a bankruptcy proceeding. Reidenbach counseled the client to place nearly $40,000 in real estate proceeds into a law firm account controlled by Reidenbach and then concealed those proceeds from the bankruptcy court. The indictment also alleges that Reidenbach falsely represented that he had agreed to receive only $1,500 for representing the client in the bankruptcy proceeding. The original indictment, filed December 9, 2010, charged Reidenbach and co-defendant Herbert P. Henderson, another attorney in Lancaster, with conspiracy to commit bankruptcy fraud and concealing assets in bankruptcy by concealing more than $51,000 of clients’ real estate sales proceeds from the bankruptcy court.
