Hello, My Name Is...

The Michigan Attorney Discipline Board increased a hearing panel's 60-day suspension to 120 days. The attorney was convicted of a driving under the influence offense and placed on probation with conditions. Among the condictions was attendance at Alcoholics Anonymous. He forged attendance sheets to falsely establish his compliance with the probationary conditions. He also continued to drink.

The Administrator had sought a one year suspension. (Mike Frisch)

I have a hard time understanding why his knowingly false statements were not made with the intent to deceive a tribunal and therefore why he was not disbarred.
