An arrest warrant has been issued for a former Louisiana prosecutor who was a no-show both Monday and Tuesday at his scheduled trial on charges of client theft.
Stephen Callahan, 51, allegedly took money from four women while subsequently working as a private practitioner but then did not perform promised legal work, reports the Daily Comet.
His lawyer, Robert Pastor, said on Monday that his client had been unable to get a ride to the Terrebone trial from New Orleans. He couldn't be reached for comment by the newspaper on Tuesday.
Callahan, who was at one point an assistant Terrebone district attorney, was at last report in drug rehabilitation.
