(Scroll down for video) A young female lawyer was looking forward to a bright and promising future when she graduated from law school.
However, things have not worked out as planned and she has been in a lot of trouble since she got her law license.
The woman, unable to put herself through college, prostituted herself to pay for college. Now, the disciplinary board punished Reema Bajaj, 27, for lying on her bar application after she did not disclose her “work” as a “call girl.”
Bajaj has already faced a criminal case for prostitution. In that case she pleaded guilty to prostitution. However, her troubles were not over, as the bar association decided to review her case.
The complaint against Bajaj was threefold: one, she was convicted of prostitution, two, making false statements in connection with a previous disciplinary hearing into the matter, three, making false statements on her bar application.
The Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission, or ARDC, stripped Bajaj of her law license for three years.
As we reported earlier, in her criminal case, Reema Bajaj pleaded guilty to misdemeanor prostitution after police said she accepted $100 in exchange for sex. Bajaj is a 27-year-old attorney at law. She studied at Northern Illinois University College of Law.
In the photo (left) Bajaj is standing next to her newly opened private law practice, but her dreams of becoming a popular lawyer was soon crushed as she was arrested only three months after she received her law licence. Bajaj became famous, but not for her successful practice, instead, she became famous for her arrest on prostitution charges.
Police focused on Bajaj in an unrelated case when they found emails between her and a man where she agreed to have sex with him for the sum of $100. The lawyer admitted that she was paid between $50 to $100 to have sex with men. The district attorney said that she might have used an adult website to meet the men.
The lawyer was sentenced to 24 months of probation, fined $2,500.00, and was ordered to complete 50 hours of community service. She was also ordered to undergo a psychological evaluation.
