TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A Topeka attorney who stole more than $460,000 from several clients' trust funds and another accused of inadequately representing clients will no longer be able to practice law.

Dockets provided by the Kansas Supreme Court on Wednesday show that Robert Telthorst and Steven Rosel have been disbarred. The Topeka Capital-Journal (http://bit.ly/ZQLb4n) reported that the men voluntarily surrendering their law licenses previously.

Telthorst pleaded guilty last month to wire fraud and money laundering. He admitted to taking clients' money for his personal use.

Meanwhile, three professional conduct complaints had been filed against Rosel. He's accused of making inappropriate advances toward a client's wife and then charging for the time he spent talking to her. Another client says that while he was being interviewed by police, Rosel was "disinterested, and possibly asleep."
