Lawyer Accepts Lap Dances As Payment
An Illinois lawyer has been suspended for offering a stripper client reduced legal fees in exchange for nude dances. Scott Erwin of DeKalb acted as legal representation for the dancer and her family on several occasions. In exchange, she would perform private dances that quickly turned ugly.
She claims during the dances at his office, he inappropriately touched her, the report states. He denied any such touching in police interviews.
Erwin credited her for $534, but she complained because her bill had reached $7,000, the report states.
