The Minnesota Office of Lawyers Professional Responsibility recently ordered the suspension of a St. Paul lawyer due to fraudulent activities, according to recent reports.
Aside from the 60-day suspension, 56-year-old John Nwabuwane Akwuba will be placed on probation for two years by the Minnesota Supreme Court. Akwuba reportedly was charged with crimes related to mishandling clients’ money as well as submitting falsified documents during an investigation.
Akwuba was convicted of making terroristic threats in 2011. The charge was originally a felony, but prosecutors amended their complaint as a result of a plea deal. The felony was downgraded to a gross misdemeanor, and a second charge for domestic assault was dismissed. Akwuba was witnessed punching his 7-year-old son repeatedly and authorities said they were forced to use a stun gun in order to make him stop.
