Former States Attorney Suspended from Practicing Law

Ellis Rollins Suspended

The residents of Cecil County should remember the embarassing tale, when States Attorney Edward Dorsey Ellis Rollins III was convicted of indecent exposure for engaging in a sexcapade with his wife that included nude erotic dancing and masturbation inside of an Ocean City hotel room in clear view of four other women.

After a trial in which witnesses expressed their trauma in testimony, Mr. Rollins was found guilty on all counts and was sentenced to 90 days in jail along with a $1000 fine.

But the consequences for his disreputable behavior do not end there. It has come to the attention of Cecil County News that the Maryland Bar Association has now suspended Mr. Rollins from practicing law for sixty days, following a petition of the Attorney Grievance Commission of Maryland.

The petition came because the respondent, Mr. Rollins, violated Rule 8.4(d) of the Maryland Lawyers’ Rules of Professional Conduct.

In addition, it was also ordered that the Clerk of Court strike Rollins’ name from the registry of attorneys in the Court.

It may have taken time, but it is good to see justice being served and the former States Attorney being held accountable by his peers.

  1. Me. Rollins has screwed me over too. In 1999-2000 he messed up an injury case. He offered either I sue him for malpractice or he’d give me his townhouse, 131 Mike ct Elkton for a year rent free then he’d sell it to me, $10000 lower than the asking price when I moved in. Long story short, I got the free rent for 10 months and then he went back on word (I know, should have gotten it in writing) . He evicted me and that was the last I’ve heard from him.

  2. Don’t know what happened to Ellis ; came from a good Father and Mother, his Dad would have been really pissed off if he were alive.

    Well as it goes he probably was under the influence, cant picture Ellis being that stupid “as a trial lawyer”. His appeal was nonsense, a waste of time. Should have saved the money.
