Attorneys engaging in alternative methods of stress-relief beware: a conviction for the possession of marijuana may result in a suspension of your law license.

An Indiana attorney was recently suspended from the practice of law for 180 days, with 30 days actively served and the remainder stayed subject to completion of at least two years of probation, after she plead guilty to possession of marijuana, a class D felony (Cause No. 49S00-1208-DI-454). The Court agreed that a suspension was warranted even though the Respondent’s plea to the underlying charge included alternative misdemeanor sentencing. In approving the agreed discipline, the Court also noted that the Respondent had no disciplinary history, the Respondent was cooperative with the Commission and the Respondent executed a voluntary monitoring agreement with JLAP.
