How not to practice law -- UPDATED

It has been a while since I posted a story to the running "How not to practice law" series, so here are two new ones.

How not to practice law:  As a prosecutor, be in a personal-romantic relationship with the lead FBI investigator you use as principal witness to get indictments before a grand jury.  The Legal Profession Blog has the story.  The prosecutor was suspended for a year and a day (although all but 6 months was stayed.)   [UPDATE 10/29/17:  Lawyer Ethics Alerts Blog has a story on this case here.]

How not to practice law:  Offer to pay a witness $7,000 for his "honest testimony."  The Law For Lawyers Today has that story here.  The lawyer was suspended for 35 days.
