You may remember Michelle Shepherd, the former Ashe County attorney who pled guilty to 16 felony counts of embezzlement and 11 counts of obtaining property by false pretense in April. Iron Horse Auction Company is holding a large auction today at Shepherd’s old house on Kemp Drive in West Jefferson to sell several of her belongings.
In all there are over 300 items up for sale with items ranging from a 1978 Corvette, to a mini dragster, and even a 65” projection television.
The auction began at 11:00 this morning. More information about the auction can be found at http://www.ironhorseauction.com/index.php?subp=1&sct=&pg=ap&pid=12233&ap_sub=det&det=1. There is a section of the website where residents can register to bid online.
Besides her embezzlement convictions, Shepherd has also not paid off about 23 existing mortgages.
Shepherd’s case is the largest proven embezzlement and fraud case in the history of North Carolina by a single attorney and she faces up to 20 years and three months in the North Carolina Department of Corrections.
