MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A former Milwaukee County court commissioner had her law license suspended Tuesday, after she was convicted of filing false income tax returns.
50-year-old Geneva McKinley agreed to the State Supreme Court's 60 day suspension. It begins July 31st, and it does not require her to pay restitution or the cost of the state's enforcement action.
McKinley served 5 days in jail, and is completing a year-and-a-half of probation. She pleaded no contest to reduced misdemeanor charges of submitting false tax documents. Two felony counts were dropped in her plea deal.
McKinley was convicted for not reporting almost $68,000 in private legal fees and rental income in 2005 and '06. Allegations that she failed to report another $60,000 in rental income were dropped.
McKinley had been a court commissioner in Milwaukee from 2007 until she was fired after last year's sentencing.
