Former Judge Suspended

A former associate district court judge has been suspended by the Iowa Supreme Court without possibility of reinstatement for two years for convictions for a third operating while under the influence ("OWI") and harrassment in the third degree.

The attorney was a judge from 1982 to 2004. He left the bench and returned to private practice after an earlier OWI.

Here, he was convicted a harrassing his estranged wife. He called her 26 times over a few hours. As a result, there was a "lock down" of the elementary school where the estanged wife worked.

The attorney must establish his sobriety and fitness to practice law in order to secure reinstatement. (Mike Frisch)
