California attorney suspended in Wisconsin

An attorney convicted of misdemeanor theft in California has lost his Wisconsin law license for 60 days.

The Wisconsin Supreme Court suspended Aaron Rollins, a 2001 graduate of the University of Wisconsin Law School, Wednesday for failing to notify the Wisconsin Office of Lawyer Regulation about a 2010 misdemeanor grand theft conviction.

According to the State Bar of Wisconsin’s website, Rollins is an attorney in Culver City, Calif.

Prior to his 60-day suspension, Rollins had been administratively suspended for failing to pay bar dues and keep up with Continuing Legal Education requirements.

According to the Wisconsin court’s decision, the Los Angeles County Superior Court sentenced Rollins to 24 months of probation for the theft conviction.

Rollins then failed to respond to several inquires from the OLR, and referee Timothy Vocke recommended a default judgment.

The majority of the court agreed and ordered Rollins pay $1,597.81 in costs for the proceedings.

In a brief dissent, Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson stated the 60-day suspension was “inadequate.”
