(TheConservativeNews.org) – Michael Mearan was a successful defense attorney in Scioto County, Ohio, and also served as a Portsmouth city council member. However, it has recently come to light that Mearan is also a dangerous criminal who exploited those to whom he owed a duty of care.

On Friday, February 5, Ohio’s Supreme Court suspended Mearan’s license on the grounds that he had induced at least five of his female clients to engage in sex work. This suspension is on an interim basis pending the results of his criminal trial.

The prosecution case alleges Mearan and his accomplices would target vulnerable females by transporting them around Ohio to engage in sex work, paying them with free legal services, cash, housing, and other gifts.

Mearan was initially arrested on October 23, 2020. This came after years of attempted investigations by both local and federal police. He now faces 18 criminal charges, including racketeering, human trafficking, and compelling prostitution. He’s providing his own legal representation. If convicted, he will face over 70 years in prison.
