Memphis Lawyer Surrenders License

Longtime Memphis attorney Mark Saripkin, 60, surrendered his law license following an investigation into allegations that he waived fees for a teenage client in exchange for oral sex, the Commercial Appeal reports. Saripkin, who has not been charged with a crime, allegedly began a relationship with his client when she was 17 and facing charges in Shelby County Juvenile Court. It continued when she was charged with child sex trafficking in federal court last year, the newspaper says.
