The Delaware Supreme Court has imposed a two-year suspension of an attorney convicted of misdemeanor drug offenses.
The police searched the attorney's home and found marijuana, Ecstasy and firearms.
He was initially charged with several felonies but pled to misdemeanors when it was determined that he was a user, not a seller, of illicit drugs. He has been serving an interim suspension since February 2011.
In mitigation, he is a Gulf War veteran and is a "politically involved, public spirited advocate for open government and good government." He also was a candidate for a state representative position. (Mike Frisch)
