A prosecutor who admitted mid-disciplinary hearing that he had made knowing false statements in discovery disclosures and responses that "unduly delayed the criminal proceedings in [two] cases and resulted in the exclusion of testimony from a confidential informant in one case" was suspended for at least 60 days by the Minnesota Supreme Court.
The respondent had orally agreed to stipulated discipline on the second day of the bar hearing and then refused to sign the stipulation.
The court found the stipulation enforceable and sanctioned him on the Director's motion to enforce. (Mike Frisch)
