36-year-old Christopher Sices was arrested and booked for identity theft, forgery, and two counts of theft.

Sices reportedly forged another attorney’s signature on settlement checks and used her federal tax ID number instead of his own. In those same cases, he is accused of keeping money for himself that should have been used to pay clients’ medical bills, said Caddo Sheriff Steve Prator.

Sices is also accused of keeping money that was paid to a client by an insurance company and forging that client’s signature on two checks.

The total loss in these cases was $11,310.

Sices' Facebook page lists his office in the 600 block of Marshall Street downtown, in Suite 730 of the Lane Building.

But that office is currently being taken up by a different attorney  whose staff told KSLA they moved in there back in March after it had been vacant. The building's manager reported Sices hadn't occupied that office in nearly a year.

Sices was also at one point listed as an attorney for Shreveport's Singleton Law Firm but their representatives told KSLA he hadn't worked for them in more than a year.

According to representatives from the Louisiana Attorney Disciplinary Board, Sices was ruled Ineligible to Practice just this past Monday, several days before his arrest.

Sices was taken into custody Thursday following an investigation by Caddo Sheriff’s Det. Doug Smith of the Caddo-Shreveport Financial Crimes Task Force.
