Valpo lawyer suspended 1 day after conviction

November 29, 2018

The Indiana Supreme Court on Wednesday suspended a Valparaiso attorney who faced multiple criminal charges of violating protective orders and was convicted of one count in a bench trial a day earlier.

Justices ordered the suspension of Timothy E. Vojslavek for noncooperation with the Disciplinary Commission’s investigation of a grievance against him. The order says he failed to reply to an Aug. 15 order to show cause why he should not be suspended for noncooperation.

The order did not indicate the nature of Vojslavek’s alleged misconduct, but online trial court records show his suspension was ordered one day after Vojslavek was convicted of Class A misdemeanor invasion of privacy in a bench trial in Porter Superior Court.

Vojslavek was charged between October and December 2016 with four misdemeanor criminal invasion of privacy counts, Porter County online court records show. Porter Superior Judge Jeffrey Thode found Vojslavek guilty of one count Wednesday and sentenced him to 180 days, all but eight of which were suspended to probation, with credit for time served.

The remaining counts against Vojslavek were dismissed, according to Thode’s court. Details of the criminal charges were not immediately available Thursday.

A message on the telephone number listed for Vojslavek said the voice mailbox was full and could not accept new messages.
