The Ohio Supreme Court has denied the reinstatement petition of an attorney suspended for a federal false tax filing conviction.
The Plain Dealer reported on the conviction
Prominent Cleveland attorney Leslie W. Jacobs was sentenced Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Youngstown to one year and one day in federal prison for one count of filing false income taxes from 2004-2007.
Jacobs, a Harvard Law School graduate and former president of the Ohio State Bar Association, was also given an additional four months, less one day, of home confinement and ordered to pay a $10,000 fine...
The court's order states that the petitioner failed to comply with the requirements imposed by his suspension. (Mike Frisch)
