Ahmad, who grew up in Canton and earned an Ivy League education, fled from justice in April 2014 while awaiting sentencing.
Ahmad flew to San Diego, took a taxi to the Mexico border, walked into Tijuana, flew to Mexico City and failed to convince authorities in the Pakistani embassy to give him a new passport under a different name. So Ahmad got fake documents from a Mexican taxi driver and flew to Lahore, where authorities arrested him for traveling on a bogus passport. They confiscated his cash and held him in jail while American officials tried to extradite him.

Finally, Ahmad gave up his opposition to extradition and he returned to Ohio in shackles in August 2015.

The Ohio Supreme Court noted in its disbarment of Alo that he had faced previous disciplinary action for accepting retainers from clients but failing to perform the work or return the money.
“Given the scope and magnitude of Alo’s misconduct at issue in his two recent disciplinary cases — including his felony conviction, his misappropriation of client funds, and his complete failure to cooperate or participate in the disciplinary process — we conclude that he is no longer fit to practice law in Ohio,” the court said.
Ahmad is serving his 15-year sentence at Terminal Island federal prison in California and is due to be released in 2027. He did not receive credit for time served in jail in Pakistan.
