Entering And Breaking Leads To Reciprocal Sanction

The Louisiana Supreme Court imposed reciprocal discipline of a stayed suspension for one year and one day based on the same sanction imposed in Colorado.After drinking to excess, the attorney entered the home of an estranged boyfriend without permission through an unlocked back door. While retrieving personal items, she intentionally broke ketchup and barbeque sauce bottles, some wine glasses, pottery and sunglasses. She also used a wine bottle to break the passenger side window of his truck. The attorney had pled guilty to criminal offenses arising out of the incident. (Mike Frisch)

As FixedWing once said as to another case, "Moral of the story, if you are going to fight with your girlfriend at the drive-in window, then buy her a can of beer and not a bottle." I think he can add some corollary about buying wine only in boxes.

... and the importance of finding a boyfriend or girlfriend who has a sense of humour.
