Credit Card Misuse Draws Suspension

The Ohio Supreme Court suspended an attorney for two years, with the second year stayed, for using his company credit card after his authorization had been revoked. The attorney used the card to pay for a lengthy stay at an Akron Comfort Inn. When the problem surfaced, he paid with a check drawn on insufficient funds. He then resigned from his job, repaid the debt, and pleaded guilty to felony theft and misuse of a credit card. The conviction will be vacated if he successfully completes a diversion program. a dissent favored a two-year suspension without any stay, concluding that the evidence showed a pattern of dishonest conduct.
