An attorney has been indefinitely suspended by the Kansas Supreme Court for failure to pay court-ordered child support. After he fell over $60,000 in arrears, he was ordered to pay slightly over $1,000 per month. When he did not pay as ordered, he failed to attend a show cause hearing. As a result, he was jailed for contempt. He missed court proceedings in unrelated matters because of his incarceration.
The attorney had served as Jefferson County Attorney and had a record of prior discipline. (Mike Frisch)
