Lawyer Takes Girl Scout Cookie Money; Suspended

From Associated Press

The state Supreme Court has suspended for one year a lawyer who pocketed Girl Scout cookie money raised by her daughter’s troop.

Marlene T. Sipes of Columbia, a lobbyist for the South Carolina Medical Assn., has since repaid the $1,819 she used in 1986 for personal and family business. The court issued a reprimand and announced her suspension Monday.
