Shaken Baby Disciplinary Charges

The Illinois ARDC has recently filed a complaint alleging that a lawyer "violently shook" one of his five-week old twin sons, which led to a cerebral hemorrage. The child showed signs of spasms the next day during brunch at a country club with his parents and  paternal grandparents. According to the complaint, the lawyer had initially denied knowledge of the cause of the injuries and later claimed to authorities that he had dropped the infant while tossing him in the air. He pled guilty to a criminal charge of aggravated domestic battery and is charged in the bar complaint with the false statements and criminal conduct that adversely reflects on fitness to practice law.
