The jury found John Young guilty on all four criminal charges. Young is the defense attorney who was charged for his role in the forgery of a will of a former client.
Those charges are two counts of forgery, theft of property, and money laundering. The next phase is sentencing. The State called witnesses to address Young's past record and actions. This included having an affair with a Sweetwater law enforcement officer's wife. Young allegedly got in several arguments with that officer and pulled a gun on him. The State said Young was also involved in a drinking and driving wreck that caused the death of a person.
The Defense will also call witnesses. In opening statements, the Defense said Young had turned his life around after attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings on a regular basis.
