The quality of police training academies in Ohio and the need for stronger statewide training standards are among the issues an attorney general’s committee is considering as it explores possible changes to the way Ohio trains police officers.
Ohio Justices Order Six-Month Suspension For Ex-AG
The Ohio Supreme Court has ordered a six-month law license suspension for former Ohio Attorney General Marc Dann.
The ruling Tuesday means Dann can’t work as an attorney during the suspension, a punishment connected to his 2008 resignation amid a sexual harassment scandal.
Dann, a Democrat, also pleaded guilty in 2010 to improperly paying two aides from political and office accounts and failing to disclose campaign expenses.
The state Disciplinary Counsel had asked for a year-long suspension. It said Dann tarnished the reputation of the office and noted that no other Ohio attorney general has ever been subject to discipline.
Dann had argued for a six-month suspension that would have allowed him to keep working as a lawyer.
