Mark Troutman, a one-time local attorney, has satisfied a condition of his probation that left undone could have meant jail.


In 2017, he pleaded guilty to two counts of attempted theft over $60,000 and two counts of attempted theft over $10,000.

At that time, he was given a 15-year probation term and 500 hours of community service.

Troutman was also to pay one of his victims just over $7,000 in restitution as part of the plea agreement.

But he had fallen behind his monthly $100 payments, according to a petition to revoke Troutman’s probation that was filed by the Eighth Judicial District Attorney’s office on Aug. 15, 2018.

After two appearances in court and a third set for yesterday, Troutman paid his debt in full following the November 2018 court date. This meant the petition to revoke his probation was dismissed.

His law license was suspended indefinitely following his 2017 plea. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 01/29/2019-6AM)
