INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The Indiana Supreme Court has disbarred an attorney it says practiced law while suspended and warned him he could face imprisonment if he continues.

The justices on Wednesday also found Christopher E. Haigh of Chicago in contempt of court.

Haigh was suspended in 2008 due to his alleged sexual intimacy with two teenagers on a team he coached.

A court order says Haigh practiced law in Illinois even though Indiana, federal courts and the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office also had suspended him.

A hearing officer determined that Haigh had clearly tried to circumvent his suspension. Haigh didn’t dispute the officer’s findings, but disagreed with the proposed sanction.

The Associated Press couldn’t find a phone number for Haigh in Indiana or Illinois phone listings and couldn’t reach him for comment.
