The Ohio Supreme Court has suspended the law license of an Upper Arlington lawyer convicted of a child-pornography-related felony.
The justices suspended the inactive license of William B. Feldman, 66, after he pleaded guilty in Franklin County Common Pleas Court to pandering sexually oriented matter involving a juvenile.
Feldman initially was charged with eight counts of pandering after authorities said they discovered child pornography on his computer at his Lyon Drive home.
Judge Charles A. Schneider sentenced Feldman on Jan. 30 to three years of community control, intensive sex-offender supervision and required him to register as a sex offender for the next 25 years.
Upper Arlington officials have notified Feldman that he will have to move since he lives near Greensview Elementary School.
- He shouldn't have to just up and sale his home just because he now wears the "sex offender" label!
Certain sex-offenders are not permitted to live within 1,000 feet of schools and other locations which children frequent.
Feldman’s lawyer told ThisWeek Upper Arlington News that he might contest the order that he move because he owned his home prior to the enactment of the law restricting where sex offenders can live.
