Sam McCloud, 68, agreed to the suspension less than two weeks after the Office of Lawyers Professional Responsibility filed a petition for disciplinary action with the Minnesota Supreme Court. Discipline can range from no suspension to disbarment.
According to the agreement, McCloud’s suspension was effective July 5, the day he reported to prison.
McCloud is serving time at a minimum-security facility in Duluth following his May sentencing. He pleaded guilty in December to a single count of felony tax evasion for failing to report nearly $600,000 in income from 2004 to 2006.
