A local attorney used homeowner's escrow accounts as a personal bank account, and he has been taken to prison. 

Garry Forsythe, age 42, pled guilty to transferring nearly $2 million in cash from those accounts to his company's account.

Some homeowners were left with two mortgages due to missed payments by Forsythe's company.

Part of the stolen money was used to buy a boat.

Officials said Forsythe was set to spend nearly three years in prison, and he must pay back the money he owes.
