A Chicago attorney will soon learn if he’ll receive reciprocal discipline for a drunken-driving crash that killed his friend.
The Wisconsin Supreme Court is set to release its decision the Office of Lawyer Regulation’s case against Guy Norman Maras on Wednesday.
Maras lost his Illinois law license after he was convicted of homicide by use of a vehicle. The deadly crash happened in Oconto County in July 2018. A complaint said Maras had been drinking and driving about 100 miles an hour on the way to a cabin with his friend. He lost control of the car, and his friend died in the crash.
Maras pleaded guilty and was sentenced to three years of incarceration and 10 years of supervision, both stayed. As a result of the conviction, the Illinois Supreme Court suspended his license for three years, although the suspension was stayed after six months by a three-year period of probation.
The Office of Lawyer Regulation is asking the Wisconsin Supreme Court to suspend Maras’ Wisconsin license for six months and order him to comply with the probationary terms.Follow @“WLJreporter”
