OLR seeks revocation of convicted attorney’s license

The Office of Lawyer regulation wants to revoke the law license of a Stevens Point attorney convicted of repeatedly sexually assaulting his wife.

David Dudas, 49, forced his wife, Jill, to perform sexual acts and choked her during the abuse, which occurred during 2012-13, according to a criminal complaint.

On April 30, an Outagamie County jury found Dudas guilty of felony and misdemeanor charges, including multiple counts of sexual assault, strangulation and suffocation, and battery. He is in jail, being held without bond, prior to his sentencing Wednesday in front of Brown County Circuit Judge Tammy Jo Hock.

The OLR filed its complaint against Dudas on Wednesday, asking the Wisconsin Supreme Court to revoke his license. According to the complaint, “Dudas’ criminal conduct reflects adversely upon his honesty, trustworthiness or fitness as a lawyer in other respects.”

The OLR also asked the state Supreme Court to temporarily suspend Dudas’ law license following his conviction, which the court did on May 21.

Court records show Dudas’ wife filed for divorce Sept. 9, a few weeks after his arrest. That case is still pending.

Dudas has no prior criminal convictions, according to court records, and has no recent disciplinary history. He graduated from the University of Wisconsin Law School in 1989.

He was with the Green Bay firm McCanna, Dudas & Kewley SC prior to his arrest, according to State Bar records.
