Former Floyd Co disability attorney Eric C. Conn has asked a Judge to dismiss part of a federal case against him. Conn’s attorney filed a motion asking a judge to dismiss Conn’s original 18-sound indictment which was reinstated after his December 2017 arrest. Conn is citing double jeopardy as the reason for this request. Conn entered a plea deal last year after he admitted to stealing more than $500 million in a social security scam. His attorney said the government cannot reinstate the original indictment because he accepted the plea. Government officials also said his sentencing occurred when he escaped custody in June of 2017. A federal judge in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky will rule on the motion once prosecution has a chance to respond.
