Attorney Joel Ragland embezzles $85,000 from Apex Title & Eric Yow

63-year-old Clarksville attorney Joel Ragland was jailed earlier this month after his business partner, Eric Yow, reported Ragland had been embezzling from the business for the past year. An audit showed over $85,000 worth of missing funds. An investigation was conducted and Ragland was recorded in a conversation in which he admitted to writing multiple checks to his personal bank account. A total of $60,000 was written from the trust of Apex Title to Ragland’s personal checking account. Two more checks were written to Moore Construction from the company’s account to pay back a personal loan owed by Ragland.
