Unfitness To Practice

A lawyer admitted to practice in Missouri and Kansas was indefinitely suspended by the Kansas Supreme Court after entering into a diversion agreement for possession of child pornography. The conduct came to light after an employee of the lawyer found material in a locked trunk. The court expressed concern that the lawyer had failed to accept responsibility for the conduct, as he blamed the person who had introduced him to child pornography, the employee (who filed the bar complaint) and his own lawyer. The court found that the lawyer had violated Rule 8.4 (a) and (b), which prohibits criminal conduct that adversely reflects on fitness to practice. (Mike Frisch)
