The Indiana Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission has filed a complaint against suspended Indianapolis attorney and developer Paul Page that could result in further sanctions against his law license.
Paul Page pleaded guilty in January 2013 to a single federal felony wire fraud charge and was sentenced to two years probation and a $10,000 fine in November. His license to practice law was suspended afterward.
Page was charged in a 14-count indictment in which two co-defendants later were found not guilty in a jury trial in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Indiana. The charges related to a real estate deal involving an Elkhart office building leased to the state. The verdict helped unravel a related public corruption investigation targeting former Marion County prosecutor Carl Brizzi.
The complaint filed this week by the disciplinary commission says Page’s conviction is a violation of Admission and Discipline Rule 8.4(b), committing a criminal act that reflects adversely on the lawyer’s honesty, trustworthiness or fitness, and Rule 8.4(c), engaging in conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit or misrepresentation.
