An Unethical Offer

The Colorado Presiding Disciplinary Judge imposed an agreed sanction of public censure as reciprocal discipline for a like sanction imposed in Virginia.

The attorney had "on behalf of his, a criminal defendant...offered money - which he described as further restitution - to the mother of a victim of child sexual assault in exchange for her more favorable sentencing recommendation regarding his client."

The conduct was prejudicial to the administration of justice. (Mike Frisch)
