OWIs Draws Suspension, Probation

A partially-stayed suspension with probation has been imposed for an attorney's series of alcohol-related driving offenses by the Indiana Supreme Court.

As a result of three different acts of operating a vehicle while intoxicated (“OWI”) committed over the span of several months in 2020, Respondent was convicted of three level 6 felony counts of OWI pursuant to a global guilty plea in January 2021. Respondent has a prior OWI conviction in 2019, as well as an OWI conviction in 1988 that predates his bar admission.

Respondent has been under an order of interim suspension in this matter since March 18, 2021.

Sanction

For Respondent’s professional misconduct, the Court suspends Respondent from the practice of law for a period of 180 days, beginning on the date of this order, with 120 days actively served and the remainder stayed subject to completion of at least two years of probation with JLAP monitoring...

If he violates the probation conditions after automatice reinstatement, a 60-day active suspension will be imposed. (Mike Frisch)
