A lawyer who stole a candy bar, video games and nearly $1,000 of merchandise was sanctioned by the Wisconsin Supreme Court on Friday.
The court suspended the law license of Shorewood attorney Naomi Soldon for six months, finding she violated multiple state rules of professional conduct related to the thefts.
According to the state Office of Lawyer Regulation, Soldon was convicted in October 2011 of felony retail theft after walking out of an Illinois department store with $958.40 of unpaid merchandise. In October 2010, Soldon pleaded guilty to stealing video games from a department store in Grafton. Soldon also pleaded guilty in October 2009 to stealing a candy bar in Madison.
This isn’t the first time Soldon has been disciplined for stealing.
Soldon’s law license was temporarily suspended in 2010 on different charges of theft, fleeing a police officer, failing to report convictions to the OLR and not cooperating with the OLR’s investigation.
The OLR recommended the 6-month suspension, which is retroactive, and Soldon did not contest the recommendation.
