KOKOMO, Ind. (WISH) - A Kokomo attorney was suspended after an Indiana Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission says he violated two professional conduct rules and his oath of attorney.
24-Hour News 8 news partner The Kokomo Tribune reports a probable cause affidavit says Dan May allegedly grabbed and pushed a client after a 2011 divorce custody hearing in a Clinton County courtroom.
Court documents say a courtroom video captured the incident and showed May pushing the client backward over a railing in front of the jury box. The client says May was extremely mad at him and told the client that he better never embarrass him again.
The victim told police investigators that he suffered back pain following the incident.
May’s suspension begins on Sept. 27 and he will not be allowed to practice law for 60 days.
May entered a pre-trial diversion on the misdemeanor battery charge in October and that will be dismissed if he follows court conditions.
