01/08/88 MATTER BRUCE E. PETIT

Filed: January 8, 1988.

IN THE MATTER OF BRUCE E. PETIT


DISCIPLINARY ACTION

Per Curiam

This proceeding was initiated by the Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission charging the Respondent in a single-count complaint with violating Disciplinary Rules 1-102(A) (5) and (6) of the Code of Professional Responsibility. In accordance with Admission and Discipline Rule 23, the parties have now tendered a conditional agreement for discipline. Additionally, Respondent has filed the requisite affidavit pursuant to Admission and Discipline Rule 23, Section 17.

This Court has held that conduct as described above committed by a deputy prosecutor violates Discipline Rule 1-102(A) (5) of the Code of Professional Responsibility. In Re Oliver (1986), Ind., 493 N.E.2d 1237. Accordingly, we now conclude that the agreement establishes a basis for discipline.

The parties have agreed that the appropriate sanction for the misconduct established under this agreement is a public reprimand. in this regard, the parties further note that the incident in question was Respondent's first offense and there is nor prior history of similar conduct or alcoholic problems. Respondent is assisting in public education of the alcohol problem, accepts responsibility for his conduct and is remorseful. under these circumstances, we concur that the agreed sanction is appropriate.

It is therefore accordingly ordered that, by reason of the above set forth violation of Disciplinary Rule 1-102(A) (5), the Respondent be, and hereby is, reprimanded and admonished.

Costs of this proceeding are assessed against Respondent.
