Case Digest ODC prosecuted Respondent for his criminal conviction of nine counts of Mail Fraud and two counts of Engaging in Monetary Transactions in Property Derived from Unlawful Activity. In February 2000, the jury found that Respondent engaged in a scheme to defraud a large car dealership of its intangible right to honest services and to obtain money and property by means of false and fraudulent pretenses, representations, and promises. In October 2000, the judge sentenced Respondent to 24 months imprisonment and two years supervised parole. After unsuccessful appeals, Respondent began his period of incarceration in November 2003. In December 2000, the Supreme Court placed Respondent on temporary suspension. While in prison, Respondent requested, and the Disciplinary Board granted, his request for a sty of proceedings until Respondent was no longer incarcerated. In November 2005, Respondent was released from incarceration. In April 2005, Respondent represented himself at his disciplinary hearing. Respondent presented five character witnesses and testified. The Hearing Committee recommended a five-year suspension with credit from November 30, 2001. On March 8, 2006, the Disciplinary Board recommended a five-year suspension retroactive to December 2000.
