Is Two Years Sufficient?

The Minnesota Supreme Court has imposed a suspension of a minimum of two years as a result of a conviction for a fourth degree criminal sexual contact attempt to solicit sex from a minor.

Justice McKeig dissented joined by Judge Lillehaug

Today the court suspends an attorney for 2 years for attempting to sexually prey upon a 15-year-old girl. I cannot agree that a 2-year suspension is sufficient to protect public safety when I do not know whether [he] is a one-time predator or a serial predator. And even if he is the former, a 2-year suspension is insufficient.

The dissent notes that the attorney refused to cooperate in the bar investigation for ten months and that he will remain on probation after he becomes eligible for reinstatement. (Mike Frisch)
