The Ohio Disciplinary Counsel has charged an attorney defending a murder case with "deposit[ing] his feces into an empty potato chip can" and throwing the can out of his car window into the parking lot of the case victim advocate's place of employment Haven of Hope.
The attorney allegedly then sped off to attend a hearing in the case.
Editor's question: Is this billable time?
Respondent pled guilty to two misdemeanors of disorderly conduct and littering. He withdrew from the criminal case due to a conflict of interest.
He allegedly had done this with potato chip cans on ten prior occasions.
The attorney -admitted in 1976 - is alleged to have engaged in conduct that adversely reflects on his fitness to practice contrary to Ohio Rule 8.4(h). (Mike Frisch)
