Former Indianapolis Prosecutor's Law license suspended after altering public records

Sorry to just be now reporting on this. The IR team has been very busy as of late. WRTV 6's Jordan Fischer had an interesting report about a former Indianapolis Prosecutor whose law license has been suspended for falsifying public records. Jordan Fischer's report from October 18th, 2017 had this to say:

The Indiana Supreme Court has suspended a former Indianapolis city prosecutor’s law license for altering records of his communications with Call 6 Investigates.
Former deputy prosecutor Mark Pizur was terminated from his position in April 2016 after he admitting to doctoring public records. In a statement to the court, Pizur called the move a “total lapse of judgment.”

The records in question were email communications between Pizur and Call 6 Investigator Kara Kenney following the death of puppies at the city shelter. The puppies were delivered by dogs seized from Upton's Famous Pet Training Center as part of an ongoing case against the kennel.

Last week, the Indiana Supreme Court ordered Pizur to serve a 180-day suspension from practicing law, to begin Nov. 22.
Pizur’s law license will be automatically reinstated following that period.
The city of Indianapolis eventually returned the dogs to Upton after an agreement was reached in December 2016. In exchange, Upton agreed to dismiss several lawsuits against the city and halt pending records requests and complaints.

Alrighty Then! Let's just digest what WRTV has reported. Mark Pizur a former Indianapolis City Prosecutor has admitted he was guilty of doctoring public records that he gave to WRTV Reporter Kara Kenney and he gets a six month suspension with automatic reinstatement of his law license. But Paul Ogden who did nothing more than accurately point out that a judge was violating the lazy judge rule was slapped with a $10,000 fine and 30 day suspension of his law license with automatic readmission. Why is Pizur not at the very least facing jail time or at least a heavy fine? This does not seem like justice was served in this case. But we are not at all surprised. Back in 2014 Scott Storms a former Administrative Law Judge at the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission who was fired from the IURC for overseeing cases related to Duke Energy, while at the same time Mr. Storms was lobbying Duke Energy for a job. In that case Storms was only given a reprimand. Even though his actions may have caused serious problems for people all over Indiana. Paul Ogden and Gary Welsh reported on Scot Storms scandal here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here

Kudos to Jordan Fischer and Kara Kenney for all there good journalistic work.
