I am sorry for the Cecil family. However, he was an attorney and suppose to know right from wrong. How can anyone ever trust him again. So glad I never used him as an attorney

well remember the money he stole was from the family who had been found guilty of tax evasion in the past.

what about the baxter's taking money from the government. is it right for them to steal and then have money to leave for their family? clinton pardoned them and gave them their rights back. so why shouldn't the family be responsible for the back taxes?????w

If they were guilty then the IRS got its pound of flesh by having them pay the back taxes, penalties, and interest. If they weren't guilty then they didn't "take any money from the government". Either way the matter was settled and they owe nothing more to the government.

By the way dumb ass, how can you equate David Cecil stealing from the Baxter family with justice? I don't believe he was acting as a law abiding citizen and was making a good faith effort to balance the scales of justice by returning any alleged ill gotten gains from the Baxter family to the government. It appears he was simply a COMMON THIEF! Actually even worse. If some drug addled addict mugs me I can't say it would be wholly unexpected. If a person in a position of trust betrays that trust and the ethical obligations of his profession there is no excuse for his behavior.

He violated his fiduciary duty, his professional canon of ethics, and the trust of his client. There is no excuse or rationalization for his behavior. He is paying the price for his CRIME. Two wrongs don't make a right and two threes don't add up to twenty. Then again, maybe they did when Mr. Cecil was calculating his billable hours.

My thoughts about this is....this was on about page 3 of the VA Mountaineer....but the Bristol put it on the first page...Interesting how the local "Good Ole Boys" paper prioritze their news. It was not enough that the Baxter had to deal with family loss, but to have "someone they trusted" D Cecil abuse his position will leave permanent scares on their heart. An attorney who is low enough to do this...would not have to heart to regret his actions....

To David Cecil: Wearing an orange uniform and picking up litter along the highway would be a perfect job for you. Giving you time to think about your stupid dishonest choices in life....

He deserves more than that.Plaza pharmacy isn't much better by being in the Ammars (Magic Mart) family. If I were plaza pharmacy I would not claim relations to Ammars. Ammars has no personality, very rude and can care less about their customers. When Walmart comes I hope magic mart goes out of business.

all this occurred while Cecil was out of his office for almost 3 months in treatment at Bristol Memorial trying to save his foot from amputation. He told the Baxters of the mistake after getting back to work, but my understanding is that would not work with him. His office has now gone out of business, he lost his license and has a county aand federal investigation over his head, he is suffering greatly, from what I hear, and freely admits his mistake.

Well isn't that conveeeeeenient!! Now who could it be that made him take that money that wasn't his... who was whispering nasty nothings in his ear... saying take the money Davey, just take it because you need it and it will be ok... could it possibly, maybe, just perhaps... be... SATAN!??!

Or maybe just plain old greed and arrogance.
