Ind. Courts - "Probation revoked for former Gibson County, Ind., attorney William Wallace"

Mark Wilson of the Evansville Courier & Press reports today on former Gibson County attorney William Wallace. Here are some earlier ILB entries. From today's story:

Probation has been revoked for a Gibson County attorney sentenced on child pornography and obstructing justice charges last fall.

William R. Wallace III was taken into custody Monday after appearing in Gibson County Superior Court. Judge Earl Penrod sentenced him to 15 months in the Indiana Department of Correction after he pleaded guilty to violating probation conditions and an additional charge of voyeurism, said Special Prosecutor Jonathan Parkhurst.

Sentencing on the voyeurism charge had been put on hold pending a possible appeal to the Indiana Supreme Court asking it to intervene and clarify the law on which the charge was based. However, Scott Danks, who represents Wallace, said Wallace told him not to pursue the appeal.

According to Gibson County court records, Wallace was charged with accessing the Internet for non-work purposes without court permission and not reporting a change of employment to the sex offender registry.
