Fatal Collision with Cyclist Leads to Law License Suspension for Kansas Attorney

A Kansas attorney has been temporarily suspended from law practice after pleading no contest last week to felony charges related to a fatal collision with a bicyclist last year.

Marc A. Schultz of Topeka will be sentenced in June for involuntary manslaughter, driving under the influence of alcohol and leaving the scene of an accident in which a death occurred, reports the Capital-Journal.

The DUI conviction is his fourth since 1989.

The newspaper says his counsel and the Shawnee County District Attorney’s Office are seeking a 43-month prison sentence, to run concurrently with what presumably would be lesser sentences on the other two counts.
