14 Crimes

The Wisconsin Supreme Court has ordered a 30-month suspension with reinstatement on conditions in a case involving 14 criminal convictions from 2008 to 2011 and the attorney's failure to report them.

The convictions were on charges of driving under the influence (two misdemeanors and two felonies), resisting or obstructing an officer (three counts), misdemeanor hit and run (two counts), misdemeanor cocaine possession, bail jumping, disorderly conduct and operating while revoked, felony endangering safety, and retail theft.

The attorney failed to cooperate with the disciplinary investigation.

The court found the reckless endangerment conviction "particularly troublesome" and noted that the attorney "had a habitual disregard for the law and her obligations as an attorney."

The reinstatement conditions require recovery from substance abuse. (Mike Frisch)
