Tales Of The South Pacific

An Illinois hearing board has recommended the disbarment of an attorney for "knowingly acquiring funds that were the proceeds of criminal activity, a prostitution business run by his wife" while he was employed with the Senate Legal Counsel Office in Palau. The prostitution ring was run out of a restaurant owned by the wife. The lawyer was found to have testified falsely in his wife's criminal trial, claiming that the proceeds of the business were derived from wedding gifts, family and his salary. He also thwarted an attempt to bust the prostitution business by spotting the undercover cop and instructing an employee to offer massage services only. He did not participate in the disciplinary proceedings and thus defaulted on the charges. (Mike Frisch)
