An attorney who had self-reported his arraignment on charges of making a false statement to a federal agency was suspended for one year by the South Carolina Supreme Court.
The charges involved a settlement statement that a $15,000 deposit had been made on a propert purchase. There had been no such deposit.
The purchaser was the attorney's wife.
He pleaded guilty and was place on probation with a restitution requirement.
The court imposed suspension effective as of the date of the previously-imposed intwerim suspension. (Mike Frisch)
