Lawyers accused of ethical lapses in Sandusky investigation

HARRISBURG, Pa. – The agency that investigates and prosecutes misconduct by Pennsylvania lawyers want the state Supreme Court to punish Penn State and former general counsel and a prosecutor who helped convict Jerry Sandusky of child abuse.

The allegations against Cynthia Baldwin and Frank Fina relate to their involvement with the grand jury of the investigation more than five years ago.

The state Office of the Disciplinary Council is pursing petitions for discipline against the two.

Baldwin is a former Judge of the Supreme court and the Penn State trustee who was the university general counsel, when the scandal broke.

Fina directly helped the research and led the successful prosecution of Sandusky by the attorney general’s office.

Baldwin and Tina both claim that they are not in violation of legal ethical rules and say that the accusations be dismissed.
