The Indiana Supreme Court has ordered the suspension of an attorney convicted of felony obstruction of justice, possession of child pornography and voyeurism.
The Evansville Courier Journal had this earlier report:
[William] Wallace, 58, was indicted in June 2010 shortly after a former client of Wallace claimed the attorney videotaped sexual encounters she had with him without her knowledge. She said he suggested that he would forgive legal fees she owed him in exchange for sex. The woman reported that she only learned about the recordings after Wallace allegedly showed them to her boyfriend.
During an April 19, 2010, search of Wallace's house in Princeton, he tried to flee from the house to his garage with various DVDs and an external computer hard drive in his pants. A search of Wallace's computers uncovered child pornography. Police also found recordings of Wallace and the woman having sex.
The suspension was imposed pending final discipline for the convictions.
The Weekly Vice reported that he had run for the position of county prosecutor. (Mike Frisch)
