Gambling With The License To Practice

The South Carolina Supreme Court reprimanded an attorney for engaging in illegal gambling. The attorney had resigned his position as a deputy solicitor in the wake of criminal charges:

Respondent has been thoroughly   cooperative with ODC throughout the course of this investigation.  Respondent   recognizes and admits that gambling of any kind is illegal in South Carolina   and that his conduct was improper.  Respondent acknowledges that his pattern of   repeated gambling violations, especially given his position as Deputy   Solicitor, indicated an indifference to his legal obligations as a member of   the Bar.  Although he represents that he never maliciously or intentionally   intended for his actions to subject himself, his office, or his profession to   the negative publicity that his conduct caused, respondent acknowledges that he   is responsible for the consequences which have ensued since April 4, 2008.
