Case Digest This is a reciprocal disciplinary matter to discipline imposed upon Respondent by the Department of the Navy. The Navy indefinitely suspended her for making false statements to an FBI agent as to the circumstances involving her being absent without leave. She falsely stated that she was the victim of a carjacking and kidnapping.
Rule Violation(s) Rule 216, Pa.R.D.E.
Discipline Imposed Suspension "consistent with" Respondent's suspension by the Navy
Points of Law Reciprocal discipline will be imposed for a suspension imposed by the Department of the Navy. Where the Department of the Navy imposes upon the Respondent an "indefinite suspension," a sanction not recognized in Pennsylvania law, suspension "consistent with" that action will be imposed on a reciprocal basis.
