Krone Disbarred

Written by on June 5, 2018

A former State Representative, Park County prosecuting deputy attorney and Cody City Councilman has been disbarred.
Former attorney Sam Krone pleaded guilty last fall to stealing more than $9,600 from the county bar association. According to an article in the Cody Enterprise, the Wyoming Supreme Court issued an order last week disbarring Krone from the practice of law, effective August 24th, 2016, the date the court issued an order of Krone’s immediate suspension.
Krone had plead guilty to one felony count and one misdemeanor conviction after his wrongful conversion of funds from the Park County Bar Association in 2011 and 2013, when Krone served as the association’s treasurer. Krone was given a 15-day jail term, to be served piecemeal, at his discretion, over the next six months. He was also given 20 days house arrest, three years probation, 240 hours of community service and a bulk restitution payment to the Bar Association to pay back the stolen funds. Five other counts, including two additional felonies, were dismissed as part of Krone’s plea package.
Under Wyoming’s Rules of Disciplinary Procedure for lawyers, Krone will become eligible to petition for reinstatement five years after the 2016 disbarment date.
