The Louisiana Supreme Court has ordered the permanent disbarment of an attorney who, among other things, brought a sixteen year old "assistant" into the Bunkie Detention Center to perform oral sex on two incarcerated clients while the attorney captured the encounter on videotape. The reason? He said he needed semen samples to overturn their convictions and achieve their immediate release (from jail).
He also was recorded soliciting inappropriate sexual contact with inmates at the Rapides Parish Detention Center.
In another matter, the attorney told a criminal client that "he would need to see [the client] in his boxer shorts." The client complied but could not follow the attorney's futher instruction to achieve an erection. The attorney tried to help by showing an explicit video and by manual stimulation, but to no avail.
In still another matter, he grabbed the penis of a post-conviction client and refused to continue work on the case after his advances were rebuffed.
The attorney made sexual advances to other clients and engaged in the unauthorized practice of law. (Mike Frisch)
