An attorney who was convicted of misdemeanor conversion was suspended for at least a year without automatic reinstatement by the Indiana Supreme Court.
In Respondent's late, nonconforming answer, Respondent argues that he is not guilty of conversion, arguing that he was wrongly accused of taking a bag of mulch from a gas station without paying for it. He also recounts alleged irregularities in this trial, but, as noted, he has not appealed or otherwise challenged his conviction.Moreover, he has not filed a petition for review of the hearing officer's report.
The attorney is presently serving a suspension for failure to pay the costs of an earlier non-cooperation with a bar inquiry. (Mike Frisch)
