Attitude Problem

A Louisiana hearing committee has recommended disbarment of an attorney who pled guilty to distribution of a controlled dangerous substance. The attorney was sentenced to three years hard labor in the criminal case but was able to appear at the hearing: "[His] testimony focused on his perceptions of the unfairness of the disciplinary proceedings taking place during his incarceration... In his appearance before the hearing committee, [he] expressed distain [sic] for the proceedings and expressed no remorse for his criminal offense." He also had a prior conviction. (Mike Frisch)
