We have an update to a story we first brought you last week. A felony charge has been filed against a local attorney, accused of taking money that was supposed to be given to a crime victim. Raymond Bess represented Christina Troung, who had been ordered to pay back more than $40,000 she had stolen from her former boss. Recently, Troung was called to court for allegedly failing to pay restitution as ordered, but her boyfriend produced receipts of the payments she made.

According to court documents, Bess then admitted he spent the money that was supposed to go to Troung's former boss.
