Drugs, Sex And Sanction

A Colorado attorney who had "sexual relations with a client who was in recovery from drug addiction while he served as her attorney" was suspended for a year and a day with all but six months stayed. He must complete three-years of probation with conditions.

The sanction was imposed pursuant to a conditional admission of misconduct. (Mike Frisch)

He deserves years of punishment because taking advantage of a client's vulnerability is just unacceptable especially that the perpetrator should be the trusted person to help the victim in a way to get over an addiction.
