The state’s high court on Friday suspended the Nebraska law license of Donna Tonderum for a minimum of three years.
The high court’s Counsel for Discipline says Tonderum was representing a client charged with rape last year when she was fired by the client. Court records say about two weeks later, Tonderum called the prosecutor in the case, saying she knew her former client was guilty and wanted him to go to prison.
The counsel says Tonderum then gave the prosecutor the names of several witnesses, stated what their testimonies would be and what she expected her former client’s defense strategy would be.
