Here is a list of attorneys who received discipline other than disbarment or suspension from Feb. 1 through Feb. 28, 2017. In the case of an interim suspension, the attorney's license is suspended while the State Bar Court determines the final level of discipline, up to and including disbarment. See an explanation of common discipline terms.
RICHARD LEO DENMAN [#164058], 58, of New York City, was placed on interim suspension Feb. 6, 2017 following his conviction for misdemeanor bank larceny, a crime involving moral turpitude.
Denman was ordered to comply with rule 9.20 of the California Rules of Court.
CARMEN LYNNE FISCHER [#117363], 61, of Chandler, Ariz. was placed on interim suspension Feb. 21, 2017 following her conviction in Arizona for attempted money laundering and assisting a criminal street gang, felonies that involve moral turpitude.
Fischer pleaded guilty to the charges. Between December 2007 and July 2013 she assisted a gang member, Angel Garcia, aka Chipas, by passing along information, money and other items of value to inmates in state and federal prison, according to the Pinal County Attorney. She received a three-year prison term and will face four years of probation after her release.
Because there was no notice of appeal, the State Bar has filed a motion for summary disbarment.
