professional conduct, deception, Colorado law, Ohio law
A Colorado district attorney used deception to get a man who had murdered three people and was threatening to kill again to surrender himself to the police. Following this, the Colorado Attorney Regulation Counsel charged the attorney with violating Rules 8.4(c) and 4.3 of the Colorado Rules of Professional Conduct. This article discusses the Rule 8.4(c) charge. Colorado and Ohio have identical provisions in their Codes of Professional Conduct on dishonesty and violations of professional conduct rules.
