LA attorney faces suspension over doctored photos

The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) A judge has recommended a six-month suspension for a Los Angeles attorney who posted doctored photos on her firm's website that show her arm-in-arm with high-profile people like President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Leonardo DiCaprio and George Clooney.

During a July trial, experts testified that dozens of photos were altered to make it appear as though Svitlana Sangary was in the presence of celebrities.

In an 18-page decision this month, Judge Donald F. Miles said Sangary failed to remove the deceptive images despite being warned by the State Bar and demonstrated disregard for the disciplinary process.

The photos were still on the site as of Monday.

The California Supreme Court will decide on the recommendation.

Sangary told The Associated Press she would have a comment later Monday.
