An attorney convicted of seven counts of lewd and lascivious behavior was suspended for six months by the Kansas Supreme Court, which rejected a proposed suspension of one year. The attorney, who had self-reported the conviction through counsel, had been found in violation of a statute that provides:
Publicly exposing a sex organ or exposing a sex organ in the presence of a person who is not the spouse of the offender and who has not consented thereto, with intent to arouse or gratify the sexual desires of the offender or another.
The decision notes that the attorney has withdrawn from active practice and moved to Las Vegas. (Mike Frisch)
