The Ohio Board of Professional Conduct has filed a report (linked here) proposing a consent two-year suspension of an attorney.
He was convicted on an Alford plea to soliciting.
In an unrelated matter he had sexual relations with a domestic relations client. The stipulation provides that the relationship was "legal and consensual" and did not impact negatively on the underlying case.
Another report involves a proposed fully-stayed six-month suspension.
The attorney represented the husband and wife in a bankruptcy proceeding and had sex with the wife. He also failed to escrow the fee and mishandled the matter.
They had "sexted" with each other and had law office intercourse.
The husband found out and both the affair and the representation promptly terminated.
Still another report recommends a two-year suspension with only six-months stayed and conditions for reinstatement for sex and neglect( Mike Frisch)
