When an attorney is censured it means he or she did something wrong but may still practice law. Typically in this case the lawyer's poor behavior is exposed to the public in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
Margaret's comment:“This problem occurred as a result of a burglarly at my home and threatened for my office. Additional security measures have now been taken such that this will not reoccur.”
