Professional Responsibility – Suspension

Where attorney Christopher S. Carson had sexual relations with a client, and mishandled another client’s fee, a 90-day suspension is appropriate.

“Upon careful consideration of this matter, we approve the stipulation and adopt the stipulated facts and legal conclusions of professional misconduct. We further find that a 90-day suspension of Attorney Carson’s license to practice law in Wisconsin is an appropriate sanction for his misconduct. Because Attorney Carson entered into a comprehensive stipulation under SCR 22.12, thereby obviating the need for the appointment of a referee and a full disciplinary proceeding, we do not impose any costs in this matter.”
