Attorney Wendell Betts of Topeka, KS; repeater, convict

 
The sate of Kansas presented Wendell with a law license in 1981.
 
The Kansas Board for Discipline of Attorneys found Wendell guilty of misconduct on at least two occasions.
 
Wendell’s 1st bite at the Attorney Misfit Apple Tree
  1. Refused to cooperate with disciplinary investigators (Up Yours, said Wendell!)
  2. Failed to provide competent legal representation (moron)
  3. Failed to act with reasonable diligence (slacker)
  4. Failed to keep client reasonable informed of status of legal matter
  5. Failed to keep client property in safe place
  6. Engaged in conduct prejudicial to the administration of justice
Wendell’s misconduct as set forth above involved his negligent handling of seven (7) client matters. Put simply, Wendell engaged in the wholesale victimization of his clients (victims)
 As a consequence of his misconduct, the apologists for Attorney Misfits sitting on the Kansas Supreme Court punished Wendell by placing him on probation for three years. In truth, the comedians sitting on the Court didn’t really mete out any meaningful punishment to Wendell,
 
Wendell’s 2nd bite at the Attorney Misfit Apple Tree

 
Wendell was found guilty of the following misconduct resulting from a speeding ticket that was issued to his wife
When Wendell’s wife Pamela was stopped by a Kansas Highway Patrol Trooper for failing to use a turn signal, she didn’t have proof of insurance and received a second citation for that offense.
 
After Wendell learned his wife was cited and knowing the car wasn’t insured, he altered (forged) a motor vehicle insurance card issued by Maryland Casualty Company for his 1976 Triumph 6. The insurance card had expired a year earlier. Wendell replaced the reference to the Triumph with Honda and changed the expiration date to make it appear as though the insurance card reflected a current insurance policy. Wendell then took the forged insurance card to Kinko’s and had it laminated.
 
Several months later, Wendell’s wife Pamela was pulled over against by a State Trooper for speeding. She then provided the Trooper with the forged insurance card. A subsequent investigation ensured and Wendell’s misconduct came to light.
 
Wendell was then criminally charged with one felony count of forgery and three felony counts of making a false information. He subsequently pleaded no contest [guilty] to two criminal misdemeanors and was sentenced to two days in jail, a fine of $500 and $128 in costs, and placed on probation for one year.
 
As a consequence of his misconduct, the patron saints for Attorney Misfits sitting on the Kansas Supreme Court punished Wendell by gifting him with a complimentary censure.
 
As we speak (September 2012) Wendell practices at 701 SW Jackson Street in Topeka, Kansas.
