Professional Conduct Committee

Soltani, Tony F. advs. Attorney Discipline Office - #13-023
SUMMARY OF PUBLIC CENSURE

On June 1, 2012, Mr. Soltani self-reported to the Attorney Discipline Office that he had been criminally charged with reckless conduct, a class B felony, and disorderly conduct, a class A misdemeanor. The charges arose from Mr. Soltaniís conduct on April 6, 2012 in Epsom. On that day, Mr. Soltani, a former part-time Epsom police officer, involved himself in an Epsom police officerís pursuit of a suspect on Route 4.

Mr. Soltani did commit the crime of Disorderly Conduct in that he engaged in conduct in a public place which substantially interfered with a criminal investigation, specifically, he interfered with the apprehension of a vehicle that Officer Kear was attempting to stop when Soltani failed to yield to Officer Kear during a high speed pursuit and attempted to stop the vehicle himself, contrary to RSA 644:2(d).

The Professional Conduct Committee concluded that there was clear and convincing evidence that Mr. Soltani has violated Rule 8.4(b) and 8.4(a) of the Rules of Professional Conduct by clear and convincing evidence.

The Committee issued a Public Censure, and reimbursement of all costs associated with the investigation and prosecution. An Order is available at www.nhattyreg.org and at the Attorney Discipline Office at 4 Chenell Drive, Suite 102, Concord, NH 03301.
