Attorney Suspension for Armed Robbery
November 26, 2013
As a blogger, I thank the SC for providing a continuing series of powder puff disciplinary decisions for me to rant about.
As a practicing lawyer, I am embarrassed.
In a decision today, the SC suspended – did not disbar, but suspended – a lawyer’s license of three years for committing an armed robbery.
Not a shoplifting or even a petty theft. An armed robbery.
So, in three years, the attorney can petition for reinstatement.
Please remember that the State Bar website does not reflect disciplinary histories. Of course, a potential future client could check CCAP, but who would think to search to see if your lawyer was a felon?
Well, given the disciplinary teeth in Wisconsin, maybe every prospective client should do so.
