An attorney who "never really practiced law" was suspended for 18 months by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court for two serious crimes, both assaults on his girlfriend. Her last name is Lachance.
The first assault took place as she was leaving her work at a tavern. He prevented her from leaving and they fell over a bar stool. He jacked her up against a wall and struck her in the face. The responding police officer's last name was Suprano.
The second asault took place after he had entered a plea of guilty.
The Disciplinary Board concluded that the attorney was unfit to practice law. He offered no explanation and expressed no remorse for his criminal behavior. (Mike Frisch)
