Indirect Criminal Contempt

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has ordered a one year suspension of an attorney found guilty of indirect criminal contempt.

The attorney was suspended for three months in 2002 after convictions for simple assault, defiant trespass and indirect criminal contempt. He has not sought reinstatement from the suspension.

He was again found guilty in December 2008 and sentenced to incarceration with conditions on release. He then breached his obligations to participate in anger management and domestic violence classes. He also failed to keep appointments with his probation officer and with a psychiatrist. As a result, his parole was revoked. (Mike Frisch)
