Ind. Decisions - "Boonville attorney suspended from practice for three years"

Today's Supreme Court ruling suspending Gene D. Emmons for three years (see ILB summary here) is the subject of a story in the Evansville Courier & Press, reported by Mark Wilson, that begins:

A Boonville, Indiana attorney who wrote $20,000 in checks to himself from the account of an 88-year-old incapacitated woman has been suspended from practicing law for at least three years.

Attorney Gene D. Emmons was Warrick Circuit Court-appointed guardian for the woman, who was living in a nursing home at the time, according to an Indiana Supreme Court disciplinary order published Tuesday.

The order noted that Emmons had already been indefinitely suspended for not cooperating with the state Disciplinary Commission's investigation and he will not be given credit for that time. He was suspended indefinitely on Jan. 25, 2016.
