A plea offer is on hold for a Venice lawyer charged with stealing millions from clients who, in most cases, were already dead.

The plea is on hold as prosecutors work out language that would protect 38-year old Adam Miller from double jeopardy if more former clients’ families come forward with claims of fraud.

According to the Herald-Tribune, Miller took an estimated $1.3 million from the estates of George and Eileen Johnston, Russell Finley, and Isla McGrath. The charges are similar to ones Miller’s father faced back in 2006, when he stole $941,000 from the estate of Holocaust survivor Beila Millet.
