The Wisconsin Supreme Court has imposed a 90 day suspension for the below-described criminal conduct:
The criminal conduct at issue involved two separate incidents in Illinois and Wisconsin. Illinois police conducted a search of Attorney Radcliffe's vehicle and discovered marijuana, drug paraphernalia, and hydroponics supplies. Illinois authorities then contacted Wisconsin authorities who obtained a warrant to search Attorney Radcliffe's Wisconsin home. The Clark County, Wisconsin, sheriff's department discovered marijuana plants and supplies used to grow marijuana. On September 27, 2007, Attorney Radcliffe pled guilty in the Clark County circuit court case to one count of manufacturing a controlled substance, a Class H felony. Two related misdemeanor charges were dismissed on motion of the prosecutor.
The court accepted a consent disposition and noted that there have been a "wide array" of sanctions imposed for misconduct involving drugs. (Mike Frisch)
