Concealed Weapon

The Indiana Supreme Court has ordered the suspension of an attorney for a criminal conviction. The suspension was imposed pending disciplinary proceedings on a battery and residential entry conviction.

Abovethelaw had this coverage of the situation, which involved allegations of violence against a boyfriend and a corrections officer. From WISHTV 8 comes this:

An Indianapolis lawyer was charged with battery after an incident with her boyfriend, but got into even more trouble when officials found a weapon in her bra while booking her into jail.

Police said Olubunmi Okanlami was hiding a 1 inch pocket knife in her bra. She is charged with 3 felonies, and her status with the Indiana Law Review Board is pending.

She's accused of beating her boyfriend, carrying a concealed weapon and assaulting an officer while she was in the process of being detained.
