Contempt Leads To Jail Time

A recent post mentioned that one potential consequence of continuing to practice after suspension or disbarment (at least for misconduct as opposed to an administrative suspension for failure to keep current on bar dues) is criminal contempt. Linked here is the current Washington Lawyer Bar Counsel page that makes the point in greater detail and with specific reference to the District of Columbia cases that have resulted in a period of incarceration.
