Ohio attorney Andrew Rauzan worked as a small-town police chief. Rauzan used the state law-enforcement database to run improper searches for people without having legitimate reasons. Because Rauzan did not contact or harm the subjects of his searches, the state prosecutor offered a plea deal allowing Rauzan to plead guilty to misdemeanors instead of felonies. Rauzan had to resign as police chief, surrender his Ohio law-enforcement certification (disqualifying him from working in Ohio law enforcement again), and report his convictions to the Mahoning County Bar Association. The Ohio Board of Professional Conduct held a hearing, and the parties stipulated that Rauzan violated the ethical rule prohibiting illegal acts that reflect dishonesty or untrustworthiness. The board recommended suspending Rauzan from practicing law for six months, stayed on the condition that he avoid any further misconduct. No one objected to the board’s report.
