Lawyer accused of misdeed

– The state commission that oversees judicial conduct filed disciplinary charges Monday against a northern Indiana lawyer who’s also a part-time judge, accusing her of having an inappropriate relationship with a client while she was his public defender.

The Indiana Commission on Judicial Qualifications accused Logansport attorney Lisa Traylor-Wolff with engaging in “sexual relations” with a client, violating the rules of professional conduct of an attorney and of violating the code of judicial conduct.

The charges filed by the commission say Traylor-Wolff was appointed on Sept. 6, 2011, to be the public defender for a 26-year-old accused of burglary, robbery and felony confinement.
