An Illinois attorney has moved for consent disbarment as a result of a conviction for attempted sexual intercourse with a 16 year old. The attorney had first been in contact with the person on the Internet and then arranged to meet her at a Walgreens.
They went togerher to his car and were later observed in the back seat by a police officer. The attorney claimed that he had no contact with her prior to meeting at the store, a version of events contradicted by a store video camera.
The incident took place in California. The attorney failed to report the conviction to Illinois bar authorities as required.
It came to light when he applied for admission to the California Bar. (Mike Frisch)
