Two Accidents Lead To Suspension

The Louisiana Supreme Court has imposed a suspension of a year and a day retroactive to an earlier-imposed interim suspension. While employed with the Attroney general's office, the attorney was involved in a minor car accident in the office parking lot. She was charged with DUI and self-reported the matter to disciplinary counsel. she went into a treatment program for alcohol and executed a contract with the Bar's recovery program.

Unfortunately, there was a subsequent accident in the Belle of Baton Rouge Casino parking lot. A breathalyzer test showed a bood alcohol content of .323%, more than four times the legal limit. Because the sanction was imposed effective in May 2007, the attorney may now petition for reinstatement. (Mike Frisch)
