A former lawyer has been sentenced in New Hampshire to six months in federal prison for misrepresenting himself.
Seventy-seven-year-old William Summers, of Haines City, Florida, pleaded guilty to a criminal contempt charge in October.
Court documents say he was suspended from practicing law in Ohio in 2012, but kept soliciting clients, including a defendant in a New Hampshire criminal case. Summers was hired for $25,000, plus travel and local counsel expenses. He didn't tell the client about his suspension.
