Insanity Verdict Leads To Indefinite Suspension

A New York attorney who had been found not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect on charges that he had fired a shotgun twice at a passing motorist and broken into his ex-wife's home was suspended on an indefinite basis due to his incapacity by the Appellate Division for the Third Judicial Department. He was committed as a result of the verdict for up to 20 years of psychiatric treatment. The attorney had been suspended on an interim basis after committing the conduct that led to the criminal charges.  (Mike Frisch)
