It Pays to be Connected
Just to refresh everyone's memory:
After being cleared by a Cook County judge (who found that she was connected to the Vrdolyak and Joyce political organizations), she was brought up on Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission charges and the day of reckoning has arrived!
- Ms. Naughton, who was licensed in 2008, was suspended for 30 days. During a time when employed as an Assistant Cook County State’s Attorney, she entered a retail store with a companion after consuming alcohol. She engaged in disruptive behavior both inside and outside of the store. Police who were called to the scene handcuffed her and placed her in a police SUV. Thereafter, she repeatedly identified herself as an Assistant State’s Attorney and swore at a female officer, calling her derogatory names, and, after she was taken out of the SUV, sat on a curb screaming obscenities. The suspension is effective on October 13, 2015.
Wow....30 days. You don't see a hammer like that come out very often.
