Ex-attorney gets prison time for 3 thefts

A former Butler attorney this morning was sentenced to prison for nine to 18 months after being convicted of stealing more than $544,000 from three estates he settled.
Although Samuel Joseph Brydon, 58, of Slippery Rock was sentenced to separate prison terms for three felony theft counts, Butler County Judge William Shaffer made the terms concurrent.
Brydon is eligible for parole in six months.
Defense attorney Michael Jewart of Butler stressed Brydon already repaid most of the money. Jewart said the $76,000 owed one estate would be repaid.
Brydon previously consented to disbarment.
He was the county’s juvenile court master for more than a decade.
