Lawyer who represented Jeffrey Dahmer has himself for client
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- One of the most high-profile defense lawyers in Wisconsin has himself for a client in an ethics case before the state Supreme Court.
Gerald Boyle gained fame representing Jeffrey Dahmer and former Green Bay Packers star Mark Chmura, among others during his 50-year career.
He faces a 60-day suspension over a complaint from state regulators who said he violated professional rules of conduct. Boyle is expected to argue Monday that such a penalty would be too high and that he deserves nothing more than a public reprimand, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
The Office of Lawyer Regulation has charged Boyle with violations that include putting tens of thousands of dollars from clients into improper accounts and providing inadequate representation.
