The Supreme Court Of Ohio has rebuked an ex-prosecutor who admitted to the alleged allegations of sexual misconduct against him. However, the court stated that the attorney could carry on his practice of law. As a result, the Justice present dissented and pointed out how things were clearly going in the wrong direction.
The justices in this 4-2 court judgment said that Mr. Mark Bennett who was former assistant to an American attorney practicing in Akron, deserved suspension for at least two years for their sexual misconduct that involved a law school intern of 24 years who previously worked in this office. was working in his office.
The order stated that the suspension would be on hold for now. However, if Bennett goes on to commit any further sexual misconduct, it would be active immediately.
Mr. Richard Koblentz serves as Bennett’s lawyer. He said they were “gratified the court saw it was appropriate not to remove him from the practice of law.”
Bennett has furnished no reply to the whole situation when asked for a comment. However, the judges declared a punishment that seemed harsher than what Bennett’s lawyers had suggested. They had wanted a six-month suspension. The catch was that this suspension wouldn’t take effect unless there was another issue.
