A Virginia attorney has consented to license revocation in the wake of convictions for assault on a police officer and robbing a client.
According to this report from PilotOnline.com (Hampton Roads), the offense was not a trust account theft.
According to court records, the charges stemmed from a meeting [attorney] Harris set up with [client] Concepcion, who owed him legal fees, at an Olde Towne restaurant in November 2008. Concepcion told police someone with Harris took $100 from his pocket and that Harris jumped into his car when he tried to leave and ordered him to write a check.
Harris had faced charges of robbery, abduction and conspiracy; he was tried in October. The judge deferred findings on his verdicts until Monday.
The judge found him not guilty of robbery but guilty of the lesser larceny charge, a felony. Morrison dismissed the abduction and conspiracy charges.
The attorney is a Regent University graduate and former public defender. (Mike Frisch)
