Lexington attorney suspended for 5 years
FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — The Kentucky Supreme Court has suspended a Lexington attorney for five years after she stole money from a client and her law firm.
The justices unanimously agreed on Thursday to hand down the punishment to Adrienne A. Thakur. Chief Justice John D. Minton wrote that Thakur took $8,800 from her law firm and a client in 2010.
After the theft was discovered, Thakar resigned from the law firm. She signed a promissory note in March 2013 and agreed to repay the money within eight months.
Minton noted that Thakar cooperated with investigators, but must undergo ethics training before being allowed to apply for reinstatement to practice in the future.
