Benton County lawyer Alan George Ward was censured today by the Board of Professional Responsibility. Ward had failed to timely file a Motion for New Trial for a criminal client, which limited appellate review solely to sufficiency of the evidence. He also failed to timely file an appeal, which resulted in the dismissal of his client’s appeal. Ward also failed to timely file appellate briefs for the client even after being directed to do so by the court.
