O R D E R

WHEREAS, the Director of the Office of Lawyers Professional Responsibility has filed a petition for revocation of probation and further disciplinary action for respondent Conrad M.

WHEREAS, respondent waives his rights pursuant to Rule 14, Rules on Lawyers Professional Responsibility (RLPR), withdraws his answer to the petition and unconditionally admits the allegations of the petition, and has entered into a stipulation with the Director wherein they jointly recommend a public reprimand and respondent's resignation from the practice of law; and

WHEREAS, this court has independently reviewed the record and agrees with the recommended discipline, including the assumption that the resignation is to be permanent,
