IN THE MATTER OF CHARLES A. LANFORD, JR.
0.
PER CURIAM.
Charles A. Lanford, Jr. was indicted in the Superior Court of Bibb County for five counts of the felony of obtaining drugs by fraudulent means. He pleaded guilty to the indictment, was sentenced, and filed a petition for voluntary discipline in the form of suspension from the practice of law for 12 months, admitting that his conviction constituted a violation of Standard 66 of Bar Rule 4-102 (d).
The State Bar of Georgia has stated that because of the unusual mitigating circumstances in this matter, it has no objection to the discipline requested. Those circumstances, as found by the Special Master, are that Lanford became addicted to a prescription drug while using it pursuant to medical direction after an injury; that he has admitted his addiction and sought treatment; that he voluntarily withdrew from the practice of law when he was initially charged with the drug offenses; that he obtained prescriptions under the name of his father, a physician, without his father's knowledge; that no client or third party suffered any harm or injury as a result of his addiction; and that there is no record of any previous disciplinary action or criminal prosecution against Lanford.
Jeffrey M. Smith, for Lanford.
DECIDED SEPTEMBER 27, 1990.
