Attorney Jennings was admitted to practice law in Wisconsin in 1975 and practiced in Milwaukee.

IT IS ORDERED that the petition of Attorney David Jennings, III for the revocation of his license by consent as discipline for professional misconduct is granted and the license of David Jennings, III to practice law in Wisconsin is revoked, effective the date of this order.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that David Jennings, III comply with the provisions of SCR 22.26 concerning the duties of a person whose license to practice law in Wisconsin has been revoked.
