Lawyer Who Says He Dropped His Pants to Educate Teens Beats Obscenity Rap But Faces Discipline Case

An Ohio lawyer who says he dropped his pants on occasion in order to educate teens he was mentoring has been found incompetent to stand trial on misdemeanor obscenity charges.

But Thomas Walkley, 53, now faces an attorney discipline case, reports the Akron Beacon Journal. He has also been placed under house arrest and ordered not to practice law by Municipal Judge David Fish.

His lawyer didn’t return the paper’s phone messages seeking comment.

The Ohio Supreme Court must decide whether to suspend Walkley’s license.
