An attorney convicted of a series of violent felonies that included attempted murder has been permanently disbarred by the Indiana Supreme Court.
The attorney pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity in the criminal case. The jury rejected by defense but found that he suffered from an unspecified mental illness. He was sentenced to a forty year term of imprisonment.
Indychannel.com reported that the victim was an Indiana State Representative. Fox59WXIN had this report on the sentencing. Gary R. Welsh blogging at Advance Indiana has a post about what he calls a decades-long fued between the families of the disbarred attorney and his victim. (Mike Frisch)
