Failure To File Leads To Suspension

The South Carolina Supreme Court imposed a 90 day definite suspension of an attorney who had self-reported that he had failed to file state and federal income tax returns from 2000 to 2007. The lawyer noted that no criminal prosecution in connection with the conduct is either pending or anticipated. (Mike Frisch)

Query, wouldn't it have made more sense for the lawyer to write to the Disciplinary Counsel invoking his right against self incrimination? I wonder if he would then have received the same lenient 90 day suspension?

Mike,

Use your spell check. All of your reports contain spelling errors or typos. Otherwise, interesting stuff.

I wonder why he self-reported this?
