A Colorado Hearing Board imposed a suspension of 90 days in a matter involving the attorney's mishandling of a criminal case involving allegations of child sexual assault, pattern of abuse.
The board found that the attorney, who had never handled such a case, violated rules mandating competence and diligence. He did not investigate the applicable law and did not associate with more experienced counsel.
The board also cited the attorney's "no harm, no foul" attitude concerning the misconduct. (Mike Frisch)
