Lawyer sanctioned for sex

Posted By on Thu, Mar 12, 2009 at 11:26 AM

A Jonesboro lawyer, David Rees, has been fined $2,500 by the Supreme Court Committee on Professional Conduct for allegedly trying to coerce a client to have sex with him. Earlier, he'd also had his license suspended.

See: a 2005 Arkansas Times article about sexual harassment of clients by lawyers. Rees' activites were prominently featured.

SPEAKING OF LAWYER MISCONDUCT: The Supreme Court today disbarred Woodson Walker of Little Rock for a lengthy list of miscues -- mishandling client affairs, problems with handling his trust account, failure to pay taxes. Walker once had a high political profile. He was a Clinton appointee to the Correction Board and a political campaigner with influence in the black community.
