"An Alcohol Fueled Rage"

The Rhode Island Supreme Court imposed a suspension of two years for the following criminal conduct:

In the early morning hours of March 14, 2009, in the City of East Providence, the respondent... a member of the bar of this state, entered the dwelling of a friend and business associate without his consent. In what appears to have been an alcohol fueled rage he confronted his friend and a female companion, who was a former intimate partner of the respondent. Wielding a club, he assaulted the female victim, causing injury to her hand.

The attorney received a suspended jail sentence in the criminal case. He pleaded no contest to disorderly conduct charges in an unrelated matter. (Mike Frisch)
