Crestone Lawyer Suspended
Chieftain Denver Bureau
January 26, 1999
DENVER -- Crestone lawyer Fred Bauder was suspended Monday for 30 days from practicing law by the Colorado Supreme Court.
As a condition for getting his license reinstated at the end of a month, Bauder was ordered to pay a previous $2,058 penalty that the court imposed on him in 1997.
Bauder was publicly censured in 1997 for soliciting for prostitution during a telephone call with the wife of one of his clients in a divorce proceeding.
"He did not pay the costs as ordered, however, or file a motion for an extension of time to comply with our order," the Supreme Court reported Monday.
In addition to the previous penalty, Bauder was ordered to pay the state's $124 cost of the suspension proceeding before it is lifted in 30 days.
