Geoffrey Simmons is and always has been a despicable man with little to no morals. The fact that he was disbarred for misappropriating money and not disbarred for assaulting a teenager (inappropriate groping and touching a PRE-teen by the way), is outrageous in and of itself. It was just a matter of time before his disgusting behavior caught up with him. And for those people that he screwed, you should take him t
