Traffic Case Misbehavior Results in Law License Revocation

The Oklahoma Supreme Court has accepted the resignation (tantamount to disbarment) of an attorney who admitted:

He admitted to making arrangements to discourage an officer from appearing to testify at a Department of Public Safety Hearing concerning the revocation of driving privileges. The plea was also entered based upon the attorney's having created false and fraudulent billings to a client's account to hide unethical and illegal payments to the police officer. Welch stated he was also aware of a grievance filed against him by Michael Leatherwood, alleging his representation of Leatherwood in a criminal case was adversely affected by Welch being investigated by the same District Attorney's Office that was prosecuting Leatherwood.

The attorney took an Alford plea in the criminal case. (Mike Frisch)
