Ind. Decisions - Supreme Court accepts resignation of William R. Wallace III from the Indiana bar

Several disciplinary orders were filed by the Supreme Court On August 14th. One is this is this order accepting the resignation of William R. Wallace III from the Indiana bar, effective immediately.

The ILB has had a number of entries on Mr. Wallace, a Gibson County attorney. The most recent quoted a July 16th C&P story that was subsequently corrected by the C&P editors. The corrected version begins:

A Gibson County attorney convicted of criminal charges submitted his resignation from practicing law Tuesday rather than face a disciplinary hearing.

William R. Wallace III, tendered his resignation in open court before hearing officer Knox County Superior Court Judge Timothy Crowley, said Michael Witte, executive director of the Indiana Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission.

Witte said the court must still approve Wallace’s request, which typically takes about 60 days. If it is rejected then he would still face a disciplinary hearing.

The earlier version has stated: "Witte said the court must still approve Wallace’s request, which typically takes from 12 to 24 months. If it is rejected then he would still face a disciplinary hearing."
