The Bill from Los Gatos

The November 2013 California Bar Journal reports the following recent sanction

 [An attorney] was suspended for one year, stayed, placed on two years’ probation with an actual 90-day suspension and ordered to take the MPRE. The order took effect Aug. 16, 2013.

[The attorney] pleaded no contest in 2011 to defrauding an innkeeper, a misdemeanor conviction involving moral turpitude.

[She] was arrested in 2010 for failing to pay a cab driver and a bill for meal at a restaurant in San Jose, as well as a bill for two days’ stay at a hotel in Los Gatos. The charges relating to the restaurant and cab bills were later dismissed.

In mitigation, [the attorney] had no prior discipline, cooperated with the State Bar and was experiencing emotional difficulties at the time of her misconduct.
