Lawton attorney disbarred

The Oklahoma State Supreme Court has disbarred former judge and current Lawton attorney Steve Lile.  Lile is a former Court of Criminal Appeals court judge who was forced to resign in 2005.  The Supreme Court found that Lile submitted false travel and expense claims while he was a judge.

Lile was accused of filing almost weekly travel claims from June 2004 to October 2004 claiming that he was attending conferences, projects or meetings.  However, the Supreme Court says he was visiting his son in prison. 

The court says Lile's false expense claims were for personal purchases made by his assistant, and he was improperly involved in his son's drug cases.
