A Florida lawyer has been suspended by the state Supreme Court for stealing $760 while working at Kohl’s.
Jacqueline Kinsella, a 2014 graduate of Barry University law school who lives in Central Florida, was suspended last week, according to the latest Florida Bar discipline report.
Kinsella pleaded no contest to petit theft and has received one year of probation.
She told Seminole County sheriff’s deputies that personal financial problems spurred her turn to thievery.
According to court reports, the “Respondent demonstrated significant remorse during her testimony at her sanctioning hearing. Her misconduct was not related to alcohol or drug abuse or a gambling addiction.”
Kinsella was admitted to the Bar Feb. 16, 2016, and admitted in Bar discipline documents to stealing money from Kohl’s on three different days.
