Discipline Summaries

July 22, 1999

PATRICK HUGH HUTCHINSON [#50799], 57, of Santa Rosa was suspended for three years, stayed, placed on three years of probation with an actual 14-month suspension, and was ordered to take the MPRE within one year. He shall receive credit for the interim suspension which began April 16, 1998. The order took effect July 22, 1999.

Hutchinson pleaded guilty last year to one count of conspiracy to distribute marijuana, and was placed on probation for three years and sentenced to six months of house arrest with an electronic monitor and 250 hours of community service.

The court found that the sentence departed from the guideline range due to extraordinary family circumstances.

Hutchinson, a criminal defense attorney in Santa Rosa, served as a courier for a marijuana dealer for several months in the mid-1990s. He had had open heart surgery and his wife, who was a heroin addict, had reneged on promises to support him and their family.

According to papers filed with the federal court, Hutchinson has demonstrated "exceptional rehabilitation," is a good parent to the couple's son, and intervened with his stepdaughter, who was introduced to heroin by her mother. The mother served a three-year prison sentence for marijuana distribution.

The interim suspension by the bar has been vacated and Hutchinson's law license is now active.

April 16, 1998

PATRICK HUGH HUTCHINSON [#50799], 55, of Santa Rosa was placed on interim suspension April 16, 1998, following his conviction on federal charges of conspiracy to distribute and to possess with intent to distribute marijuana and criminal forfeiture. He was ordered to comply with rule 955.
