A Louisiana Hearing Committee has recommended a year and a day suspension of an attorney based on a criminal conviction reported by the attorney's "former tenant/roommate."
On July 2, 2009, the attorney
led law enforcement officers on a high-speed chase from Mississippi into Louisiana, As police units follwed Respondent with lights and sirens on, she traveled in and out of traffic and ran other vehicles off the road. Respondent finally stopped at a Rest Area and was ordered to get on the ground. She refused and was then handcuffed.
The attorney was convicted of DWI first offense and failed to cooperate with the probation imposed. There has been a warrant for her arrest out since September 2011.
Also, the attorney did not participate in the disciplinary matter. (Mike Frisch)
