PostSubject: Good stuff: OZschwitz lawyer struck from legal roll for 'fundamental lack of integrity'    Mon Sep 04, 2017 7:44 pm

A Canberra solicitor who was sent to jail after he fraudulently accepted tens of thousands of dollars in legal fees has been struck off the legal roll for "serious dishonesty" and a "fundamental lack of integrity".

Stephen Raymond Stubbs, 64, was sentenced to more than three years imprisonment for accepting nearly $30,000 from Legal Aid ACT and a client's mother to defend her son for conspiracy to murder.

He was to serve one year behind bars with the rest suspended upon entering a good behaviour order for more than two years after a jury found him guilty of 14 fraud offences.

Stubbs was representing Alexander Duffy, then 19, when he demanded $25,620 for legal work from his mother, Anne Duffy, and $4013 from the Legal Aid office in 2008 and 2009.

Lawyers are not allowed to take outside money for a case after a client has been granted legal aid, and Stubbs had not told either party he was accepting funds from the other.

He has since launched an appeal against his convictions and sentence.
