Former Attorney Admits To Collecting Pension Payments From Deceased Individual

 A former Rhode Island attorney is pleading guilty to fraud and pension theft charges. The U.S. Justice Department says Oleg Nikolyszyn, who was an attorney in Providence, admitted to fraudulently collecting about a quarter-million dollars in pension funds in the name of a former client for nearly twelve years after the former city of Providence employee's death. Nikolyszyn was suspended from practicing law in the state in 2016. The DOJ says he is set for sentencing in April.
