An Idaho divorce lawyer has been suspended from practicing law for five years after conduct that included having a romantic relationship with a client, destroying a surveillance camera at the marital property, and, in an unrelated instance, resisting officers after an arrest linked to following a marked law enforcement vehicle too closely, according to an Idaho State Bar notice.
