According to the Supreme Court's Order, Massillamany promptly self-reported his arrest last July. In 2010, Massillamany received a public reprimand from the Supreme Court after he pleaded guilty to operating a vehicle while intoxicated and endangering another person's life, a Class A misdemeanor. Massillamany had a prior conviction for OWI dating back to 2000. The Court's Order also says that Massillamany had neglected to report a prior illegal consumption arrest in 1996 on his initial application to practice law in Indiana or in his renewed application. Massillamany will be reinstated following his six-month suspension as long as he complies with the terms of his probation.
The order found that Massillamany violated the following rules of professional conduct:
8.1(a): Knowingly making a false statement of material fact to the Board of Law Examiners in connection with a bar admission application.
8.1(b): Failure to disclose relevant facts to the Board of Law Examiners.
8.4(b): Committing a criminal act that reflects adversely on Respondent's trustworthiness or fitness as a lawyer.Hat tip to Indiana Law Blog.
