GARY ROBERT ODOM , 50, of Riverside was suspended for three years, stayed, placed on three years of probation with an actual two-and-a-half year suspension and until he makes restitution and proves his rehabilitation.

He also wrote numerous checks against insufficient funds.
The misappropriation of client funds totaled more than $117,000.
