Drinking Problem Suspected for Drunk Attorney

LTB logo

On Monday, a 59-year-old attorney was jailed for lawyering while intoxicated.  The court found the man in contempt of court for showing up drunk, and ordered him held without bail at least until Thursday, when he is scheduled to appear in court on an unrelated matter.

The drunk attorney was in court on Monday to appeal a conviction on drunk-driving charges.  That particular appeal is on his second conviction so far out of four pending counts.  The basis for the appeal was not stated in the article, but was probably not strengthened by Monday’s appearance.
