The charge is in connection with an investigation that began after numerous complaints were filed by clients of Gammage claiming that they did not receive settlement money owed to them from workman's compensation settlements.
Gammage was arrested in November of 2011 and charged with theft by taking, six counts of first degree forgery and six counts of theft by conversion.
Gammage voluntarily surrendered his license in January of 2012 after the State Bar filed a complaint against him alleging violations of the Georgia Rules of Professional Conduct.
In April of 2012, as part of the ongoing investigation, agents with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation executed a search warrant at his home. Greg Ramey, Assistant Special Agent in Charge with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation confirmed over 50 victims had come forward at that time.
Gammage will be sentenced before U.S. District Judge Robert Vinings in May. He faces up to 20 years in prison and could be fined up to a maximum of $250,000.
