SIDNEY — A former Sidney attorney has been suspended from the practice of law for an interim period.

On Wednesday the Supreme Court of Ohio ruled in favor of the suspension of Joshua S. Albright, of Troy, a former associate at the law firm Roberts, Kelly and Bucio practicing in Sidney.

On Dec. 17, 2015, The Ohio State Bar Association had filed a motion with the supreme court for immediate interim remedial suspension of Albright.

Albright was indicted by the Shelby County Grand Jury on five counts of forgery, fifth-degree felonies, and entered a plea of not guilty to all charges in February 2015.

According to the indictment, on Aug. 15, 2014, Albright knowingly uttered falsified paperwork for custody on behalf of Christopher M. Strunk which bore a fraudulent file stamp from the Juvenile Court of Shelby County.

The dates of the jury trial in his case have been rescheduled three times. It is currently scheduled for April 11, 12, and 13, 2016.

Albright graduated from Capital University in Columbus in 2008 with a bachelor’s degree in political science and history. He attended the University of Dayton Law School and earned his Juris Doctorate in 2011, the same year he was admitted to the bar.

He is a member of the Ohio State Bar and Dayton Bar Associations and currently lives with his wife in Troy.
