Disciplinary Probation For Eight Crimes

This disciplinary case summary appears in the most recent edition of the California Bar Journal:

[An attorney] was suspended for two years, stayed, placed on five years of probation and was ordered to take the MPRE within one year. The order took effect Oct. 29, 2009.

[The attorney] stipulated that he was convicted of eight crimes between 1999 and 2006 — battery against a spouse or cohabitant; contempt of court (twice) for violating a protective order; three instances of driving under the influence; child endangerment; and assault and battery. The violations did not involve moral turpitude.

I'm sure the attorney will do well on disciplinary probation as he likely has some experience with court-ordered supervision. (Mike Frisch)
