A Toy Gun And A Bucky Badger Hat

A three-year suspension is the sanction for an attorney convicted of armed robbery, imposed by the Wisconsin Supreme Court.

The facts:

Attorney Hubatch was admitted to the practice of law in Wisconsin in 2004.  His law license was suspended effective October 31, 2007, for failure to pay State Bar dues.  His license remains suspended.  Attorney Hubatch has not previously been the subject of professional discipline.

The stipulation states that on January 11, 2013, Attorney Hubatch donned a Bucky Badger hat and robbed a Madison, Wisconsin, credit union of $500 while in possession of a toy gun.  Within the following week, after being spotted publicly wearing the Bucky Badger hat, Attorney Hubatch confessed to a Madison detective that he had robbed the credit union.

Attorney Hubatch was charged with one count of armed robbery in violation of Wis. Stat. ยง 943.32(2) in Dane County Circuit Court Case No. 2013CF117.  Attorney Hubatch pled guilty to the charge on February 21, 2013.  On April 16, 2013, the circuit court sentenced Attorney Hubatch to two years in prison, followed by three years of extended supervision.  Attorney Hubatch is currently incarcerated at the Oshkosh Correctional Institution.
