February 05, 1996|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Attorney F. Lee Bailey was found in contempt of court in Ocala and ordered to turn over $21 million in stock from a former client. Bailey, 62, says the stock is payment for representing Claude Duboc, a French American who pleaded guilty to conspiracy to import drugs and laundering the proceeds. Duboc had agreed to testify for the government and forfeit $200 million in assets. Prosecutors said Bailey was entrusted with some of the money to maintain Duboc's other assets. Bailey declined to comment.
