Stipulated Sanction

The Director of the Office of Lawyers Professional Responsibility has filed a petition for disciplinary action alleging that respondent...has committed professional misconduct warranting public discipline-namely, making multiple knowingly false statements to the prosecutor and the court while representing two clients, instructing his paralegal to file a request for a continuance with the court that included multiple knowingly false statements, failing to appear in two criminal matters, appearing on two occasions incapacitated and unable to represent clients, resulting in delays to court proceedings, and initially omitting the reason for his incapacitation when responding to the Director's inquiry.
