Convictions Lead To Suspension

The Louisiana Attorney Disciplinary Board has recommended a suspension of one year and one day of an attorney, currently on inactive status, for her conviction of making threatening telephone calls and stalking, the revocation of probation and court orders in connection with the convictions, and operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated. The victims of the misconduct had "suffered potential psychological and physical harm." The attorney suffers from alcoholism and other physical problems. The board, in line with court precedent, declined to consider conditions of reinstatement until such a petition is filed and adjudicated. (Mike Frisch)
