An Explanation, Not An Excuse
The South Carolina Supreme Court has disbarred an attorney for misconduct that included the misappropriation of a substantial amount of entrusted client funds.
The court commented on the attorney's pro se oral argument before it:
The current allegations, which Respondent has admitted, include misconduct that has resulted in significant harm to his clients. Respondent admitted at oral argument he stole client funds simply to support a more lavish lifestyle. Moreover, Respondent has not raised any exceptions to the Panel's report recommending that he be disbarred. Accordingly, we find disbarment is an appropriate sanction.
