The Louisiana Attorney Disciplinary Board has recommended disbarment for misconduct that included the theft by the attorney of a can of gasoline from his elderly father and battery against the father when he tried to prevent the theft. The incident led to the father having a broken finger. The attorney also conspired to commit forgery to obtain drugs. The board concluded that disbarment was appropriate even though it rejected findings that the attorney violated escrow obligations.
The board remanded findings that the attorney had committed perjury in the disciplinary matter. (Mike Frisch)
