Attorney Nancy Flatt-Moore of Anderson, IN; moronic loser

 
The state of Indiana provided Nancy Joanne Flatt-Moore with a law license in 1998.
 
The Indiana Disciplinary Commission found Nancy guilty of the following misconduct.  
 
Nancy’s misconduct arose while she was employed as an assistant Hancock County Prosecutor. Subsequently, Nancy was assigned to prosecute a case wherein a defendant had written three bad checks totaling about $70,000 wherein Big Rivers was the victim.
 
At the time, Dean Dobbins was the newly elected Hancock County prosecutor. During his campaign, Dobbins ran ads stating he would have a policy of police and victim approval of felony plea agreements. At the disciplinary hearing, Dobbins testified that his policy did not include giving the victim of a property crime the right to dictate the terms of restitution as a precondition to his office accepting a plea.
 
After communicating with an attorney representing Big Rivers regarding its monetary demands, Nancy offered a plea agreement under which the defendant would plead guilty a Class D felony Check Fraud but would be convicted and sentenced as a Class A misdemeanor on the condition that the defendant agree to whatever terms and amounts Big Rivers was demanding.
 
Big Rivers demanded payment of $108,502, which was $40,000 more than the amount of the bounced checks. The defendant refused the offer as being excessive and asked that the judge decide the amount of restitution. Nancy refused to that offer and told defense counsel, “I don’t have authority to make an offer that the victim doesn’t agree to. You’re trying to sell the wrong person. Go sell Big Rivers. If they agree, I don’t care what it is.”
 
The defendant agreed to the office since it was the only way he could resolve the matter as a misdemeanor without going to trial. When questioned by the judge, the defendant stated that he entered into the plea agreement as a free and voluntary act without force of threats. Of course Nancy knew this statement to the judge wasn’t true; however, she chose to remain silent.
 
Nancy’s demand that the defendant agree to pay $40,000 above the amount of the bounced checks violated the Indiana Restitution Statute, a fact she knew or should have known.
 
The real truth here is that Nancy was cheerfully acting as a collection agency for Big Rivers rather than looking out for the best interests of the taxpayers of Hancock County in prosecuting criminal cases.  
 
As a consequence of her misconduct, the cheerleaders for Attorney Misfits sitting on the Indiana Supreme Court punished Nancy by gifting her with a complimentary reprimand.
 
As we speak (ca. September 2012) Nancy practices at 4627 Southern Avenue in Anderson, Indiana.
