A complaint was filed against Frederic Charles Schultz based on his alleged efforts to extort money from a client. The accusation indicates that Schultz lured a client to leave a court appointed attorney and sign a retainer for legal representation. After court approval Schultz is alleged to have presented his client with a new contract demanding more cash and a significant interest in real property. The client refused.
Schultz allegedly made threats against the client stating that the client would lose his freedom and all property if the client did not sign the new agreement. These threats were witnessed and affirmed by multiple persons. The client claims to have received annoyance phone calls and E-mail death threats related to his case. TOV Research obtained copies of telephone records verifying calls at unreasonable times and examined E-mail death threats. It is certain that annoyance calls were made and E-mail sent to the client yet authorities have yet to identify the source of the calls and E-mail threats.
At the date and time of this article, Schultz has not been arrested and charged with a crime. His client will be meeting with detectives shortly.
