Attorney Eileen Addison of Yorktown, VA; ethical misfit

 

The state of Virginia presented Eileen Marie Addison with a law license in 1988 after she graduated from the University of Denver Law School. 

 

The Virginia State Bar Disciplinary Board found Eileen guilty of the following misconduct.

 

At the time of her misconduct, Eileen was the Commonwealth’s attorney for York County and the City of Poquoson.

 

In one matter, Michael Tyler was shot and killed as he approached a vehicle in York County. There were three individuals in the vehicle that the shot came from killing Tyler, Marquis Edwards, Kwaume Edwards and Carlos Chapman. After the shooting, police found the murder weapon in the back seat of the car.

 

All three men initially told police that Marquis was the shooter. Eileen was named as the lead prosecutor in the murder cases against all three defendants.

 

During the pendency of the aforementioned criminal cases, Eileen chose to violate her oath of office by concealing exculpatory evidence from one or more the defendants that she knew as prosecutor that she had a duty to disclose. In other words, in her zeal to place a notch on her conviction belt, Eileen wasn’t much concerned about complying with her oath to assist the courts in dispensing justice. In fact, Eileen was more concerned with “dispensing with justice.”

 

As a consequence of her misconduct, the apologists for Attorney Misfits sitting on the Disciplinary Board punished Eileen by gifting her with a complimentary reprimand.

 

As we speak (ca. September 2013), Eileen practices at 519 Sandpiper Cove in Yorktown, Virginia.
