Sanction For Crimes Unrelated To Practice

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has adopted  a recommendation of a three-year suspension of an attorney retroactive to December 2005. The attorney had been involved in a series of drug-related crimes during a period of unemployment after graduating from law school in 1999 and completing clerkships in 2001. She has been in a recovery program since 2004. Although the attorney had not reported criminal convictions as required by Pennsylvania bar rules, she had been otherwise cooperative with the disciplinary process. The report of the disciplinary board is appended to the court's order. (Mike Frisch)
