Ind. Decisions - More on: Supreme Court issues five disciplinary rulings

Updating this ILB entry from Jan. 14th, Rebecca S. Green of the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette reports on one of the recent disciplinary actions taken by the Supreme Court, In the Matter of Jon A. Criss.

The story begins:

The Indiana Supreme Court suspended the law license of a Noble County lawyer convicted of possession of methamphetamine.

Last summer, Jon A. Criss, 44, was arrested after going to great lengths to hide from authorities, even submitting his own obituary to a local newspaper to fake his own death.

According to court documents, he was arrested at his own home in the 8800 block of North County Road 550 East in Kendallville after deputies responded to reports he was having a possible heart attack.

Inside the house, a deputy found a white powder substance in a coffee filter in a jewelry case sitting on a bedside table. The substance tested positive for methamphetamine. Marijuana was also found inside the master bedroom, as was a wooden box containing a package of synthetic marijuana.
