A disbarred New York lawyer who went on the lam after he was accused of stealing from clients was arrested earlier this month while hitchhiking in Wyoming.
He pleaded not guilty in Nassau County on Thursday to second-degree grand larceny and first-degree scheme to defraud in the alleged theft of $211,000 from client escrow accounts.
