Smokeable Pocketknife

The Illinois Administrator has recently filed a complaint alleging a number of ethics violations including misleading advertising and office signs and violation of a civil protection order

He is also charged with this:

On February 7, 2011, Respondent entered a federal building at 101 W. Congress in Chicago to handle an immigration matter. At that time, he submitted to a routine security search to enter the facility and had in his possession two grams of marijuana. Federal Protective Service officers discovered that Respondent had the marijuana and detained him. The officers then cited Respondent with violation of 41 CFR 102-74.400 and released him. The matter of Respondent's violation of 41 CFR 102-74.400 was docketed by the Clerk of Court for the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois as case number H5036487.

On May 9, 2011, Respondent pled guilty to violation of 41 CFR 102-74.400 in case number H5036487, and Magistrate Sidney Schenkier sentenced him to a fine of $175, plus payment of $25 in court costs.

Finally, he is charged with falsely claiming to disciplinary authorities that the above incident involved a pocketknife rather than marijuana. (Mike Frisch)
