A Hamilton attorney accused of exposing himself to others while driving has been suspended from practicing law in Ohio by the Supreme Court.
Attorney Scott Blauvelt was licensed to practice law in Ohio in 1997, according to the Supreme Court’s opinion.
In June 2020, he was arrested and pled guilty to charges of public indecency and reckless driving.
His license to practice law was suspended for two years. Blauvelt pleaded guilty to indecent exposure in Warren County in October 2018 and was sentenced to probation as a result of a traffic stop in October 2018.
According to court documents, he exposed himself and engaged in sex acts while driving again.
In 2006, Blauvelt served as Hamilton’s city prosecutor. On multiple occasions, he was observed walking through the city building in with his whole ass out (naked). Eventually, he was fired and his law license was suspended.
According to court documents, Blauvelt exposed himself while driving on Interstate 75 in November 2020. A woman observed a “naked white male” performing a sex act on himself while staring at her on November 30.
When this woman pulled out her phone to record the incident, Blauvelt allegedly gave her a “thumbs up,” slammed on his brakes, and pulled up alongside her again, but this time at a slower speed.
The Supreme Court stated that after reviewing the evidence, they concur that Blauvelt cannot resume practicing law in Ohio until he demonstrates that his conduct was consistent with the ethical and professional standards of Ohio lawyers.
The court ruled that Blauvelt has demonstrated he has bipolar disorder and has been receiving treatment for over six months. The opinion also noted that he exhibits remorse but still has the compulsion to engage in unacceptable behaviour.
