An Indianapolis lawyer who pleaded guilty in early 2019 to his second drunken-driving conviction in less than five years received a stayed 30-day suspension subject to two years of probation in an Indiana Supreme Court attorney discipline order handed down Friday.
Adam Lenkowsky of the Roberts Litigation Group was charged in February 2018 with Level 6 felony operating a vehicle with an alcohol concentration of 0.15 or more with a prior conviction, along with two misdemeanor counts of OWI endangering a person. According to online court records, following a guilty plea in Hamilton Superior Court, Lenkowsky was sentenced to serve 10 days in the Hamilton County Jail and 240 days on home monitoring through Hamilton County Community Corrections.
In its order, the Indiana Supreme Court noted Lenkowsky pleaded guilty to a Level 6 felony OWI with endangerment charge that was reduced to a misdemeanor, a violation of Indiana Rule of Professional Conduct 8.4(b), which prohibits criminal acts that reflect adversely on trustworthiness or fitness as a lawyer.
The court issued a suspension of 30 days stayed subject to completion of at least two years of probation. Lenkowsky, the order says, “has no prior discipline, has been fully cooperative with the (Indiana Supreme Court Disciplinary) Commission, and has voluntarily taken several measures since his arrest in Hamilton County to respond to his misconduct, including entering into a long-term monitoring agreement with the Judges and Lawyers Assistance Program.”
Costs of the proceeding are assessed against Lenkowsky. The case is In the Matter of: Adam Lenkowsky, 19S-DI-541.
