The Illinois ARDC has filed charges against a bar member as a result of a criminal conviction. It is alleged that the lawyer left a seven year old child home alone and went on a shoplifting spree at Kohl's Department Store. According to the complaint:
While inside Kohl's, Respondent placed in a bag a bottle of perfume, several items of children's clothing, and a massage cushion that was the property of Kohl's, and that had a total retail value of $479.99. Respondent then exited Kohl's after circumventing security sensors located at the store exit with the intent of not paying Kohl's for the merchandise.
The convictions were for misdemeanor retail theft and misdemeanor endangering the life or health of a child. The attorney pleaded guilty to both charges. (Mike Frisch)
