Case Digest Petitioner received a five-year retroactive suspension (to date of temporary suspension order) for his criminal conviction of nine counts of Mail Fraud and two counts of Engaging in Monetary Transactions in Property Derived from Unlawful Activity. A jury found that he 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. The judge sentenced Petitioner to 24 months imprisonment and two years supervised parole. After unsuccessful appeals, Petitioner began his period of incarceration. The temporary suspension began in December 2000. While in prison, Petitioner requested, and the Disciplinary Board granted, his request for a stay of proceedings until he was no longer incarcerated. By the time Petitioner got out of prison he had already been suspended for five years. In 2006, he received his five year retroactive suspension. The reinstatement hearing was held in October 2007. Petitioner represented himself and presented 11 witnesses and nine exhibits. ODC did not oppose the petition. The Hearing Committee and Disciplinary Board recommended reinstatement.
