The Wyoming Supreme Court has disbarred a former county deputy attorney who had purchased a 2007 Harley Davidson Ultra Classic motorcycle from an Idaho dealer.
He misrepresented the purchase price of the Ultra Classic motorcycle to pay less in taxes and other fees. He claimed that the price was $800 when it in fact was $14,000.
In attempting to renew the resistration of other Harleys he owned, the attorney made similar misrepresentations to the county treasurer and submitted a falsified sales document. His tax obligation was reduced by over $900 as a result.
He was charged with felony forgery and possession of forged writings, resigned his deputy attorney position, and negotiated a plea to one felony count. He was placed on unsupervised probation for two years. (Mike Frisch)
