A Louisiana Hearing Committee has proposed a suspension of a year and a day for an attorney for misconduct unrelated to the practice of law.
The attorney was arrested in Lafayette, Louisiana in 2006 on charges of drunk driving, possession of marijuana and possession of cocaine. After a bench warrant was issued, the charges were resolved. The second arrest was in Oakbrook, Illinois in 2007 and involves charges of DUI, speeding and improper lane usage. A bench warrant was issued after the attorney posted bond and failed to appear. The warrant remains active.
The attorney must petition for reinstatement and demonstrate that the Illinois matter has been resolved. (Mike Frisch)
