IN THE MATTER OF ROBERT A. LAING, Respondent.


On August 15, 1989, the office of the disciplinary administrator filed a formal complaint with the Kansas Board for Discipline of Attorneys, charging Robert A. Laing of Wichita, Kansas, with violations of Canon 1 of the Kansas Code of Professional Responsibility, Supreme Court Rule 225 (1989 Kan. Ct. R. Annot. 146).

The complaint alleges that on the 28th day of March, 1988, the respondent pled guilty to two felony charges. Respondent was sentenced to a term of three to ten years on one charge and a term of two to five years on the other charge. The sentences were to run concurrently. On October 13, 1988, the respondent's sentence was modified and he was placed on probation for five years.

An investigation of the complaint was conducted by the disciplinary administrator's office, and, on October 4, 1989, respondent filed an answer to the formal complaint. The complaint was heard on the 4th day of October, 1989, before a panel of the Kansas Board for Discipline of Attorneys, and the panel filed its report with the court on November 28, 1989. Respondent did not file exceptions to the panel report. By letter dated February 27, 1990, respondent voluntarily surrendered his license to practice law in the State of Kansas pursuant to Supreme Court Rule 217 (1989 Kan. Ct. R. Annot. 137).
