Break Up Browsing Leads To Suspension

The Michigan Attorney Discipline Board affirmed a tri-county hearing panel's imposition of a 179 day suspension (i.e. with automatic reinstatement) of an attorney convicted of possessing sexually explicit child photographs.

The images were discovered by the attorney's then-girlfriend, who "was going through [his] laptop [computer], in contemplation of a break-up, to remove pictures and videos they had taken together." She then called the police.

The panel had found that the conduct involved the attorney's "private browsing habits" and that he is not a danger to the public. (Mike Frisch)
