Crime Against Nature

The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court has disbarred an attorney convicted of a criminal offense in Rhode Island. The summary of the case from the web page of the Board of Bar Overseers described the criminal matter:

On October 28, 1997, the respondent was convicted in the Kent County Superior Court of Rhode Island of "the abominable and detestable crime against nature" in violation of R.I.G.L. ยง 11-10-1. The conviction involved sexual misconduct with a four year old boy. The respondent was sentenced to seven years' imprisonment, all suspended, and placed on probation with conditions that he engage in alcohol counseling and register as a sex offender.

The court rejected defenses that the conduct was unrelated to practice and that the attorney had been suspnded in Rhode Island. (Mike Frisch)
