Jailhouse Lawyer

Jeannie Braun, the lady lawyer who was recently convicted of falsifying legal documents is sitting in the Ada County jail and she may sit longer if she doesn’t write a letter to the Idaho State Bar–a condition of her plea bargain.

It may sound oxymoronic (for you non-library types that means contradictory) but some honest lawyers have expressed concern about professional legal sanctions against her. Our sources at the Bar assure us charges were filed in April and are still pending.

She was to have written a letter to the quasi government agency which licenses lawyers informing them of her conviction and admitting she would be subject to disbarment and banned from practicing law. So far, no letter and the Ada County prosecutor may be forced to take her back to court. At least she will be easy to find.
