Eric C. Conn has long been a blemish on Eastern Kentucky.  with his gaudy display of riches and omnipotent behavior, he has embarrassed us all.  Calling himself "Mr. Social Security," and taking advantage of an already broken system, he was able to get nearly 1,750 bogus Social Security cases approved, making him and his associates nearly $6 million in one of the biggest Social Security scams in history.   

On March 24, 2017, Eric C. Conn, pleaded guilty to a $550 million Social Security Fraud scheme.  He was ordered to pay $36 million in restitution, damages, and penalties.  Many of his clients immediately lost their benefits and at least 3 suicides are reportedly linked to the payment suspensions.  Eric C. Conn has blood on his hands.   

In 2016 he was set free on a $1.25 million bond and insisted he was not a flight risk, even though he had previously told employees he had money stashed overseas and would flee to Cuba or Ecuador if he ended up in legal trouble.  Scheduled to be sentenced July 14, 2017, Conn removed his electronic monitoring device and on June 2, 2017, the monitoring device was found in a backpack in Lexington, Kentucky.  He is currently on the run, wanted by the FBI and a $20,000 reward is offered for his arrest.  

In epic Eric C. Conn fashion, he commissioned to have his name put on the Betsy Layne High School sign, currently located in Stanville, Kentucky off of US 23.  He is a criminal, he should not represent the school and no student attending Betsy Layne High School should see him as a role model.  You put the names of heroes on schools, not zeros.  I am petitioning the Floyd County Board of Education Superintendent, Dr. Henry Webb and the Betsy Layne High School Principal, Jody Roberts to remove this display.  Eric C. Conn is a disgrace and tarnishes the reputation of the entire community.
