Former Winchester attorney charged with embezzlement, forgery
A former Winchester-based attorney has been indicted on felony charges related to an ongoing investigation into his business practices.
A grand jury handed up one felony count of embezzlement and two felony counts of forgery charges against Travis J. Tisinger, 53, of Forty Fort, Pa. on Tuesday.
The charges stem from an investigation the Virginia State Police (VSP) Bureau of Criminal Investigation’s Culpeper Field Office initiated in May 2019. Tisinger is accused of withholding a client’s $8,000 settlement and forging signatures.
The investigation was referred to VSP from the Winchester Police Department.
According to a news release, Tisinger turned himself in to state police Thursday, Sept. 17 at the Rappahannock-Shenandoah-Warren Regional Jail and went before the magistrate who released him on bond.
The investigation remains ongoing at this time.
