Oklahoma City attorney, Frank Kirk, 70, is looking at a likely disbarment after his arrest in a bizarre discovery in the Oklahoma City Jail. Kirk is accused of smuggling in a sex toy for a female prisoner to use in exchange for his legal representation. He is now charged with possession of contraband and multiple counts of offering to engage in an act of lewdness. What is interesting is that one of the most serious charges is not his sneaking in a vibrator or the sexual acts but the cellphone that he had with him. It is a felony to bring a cellphone into a prison interview room. What is particularly distressing is that this alleged act of depravity is now the basis for proposed changes limiting counsel and expanding searches. This is a case that by any measure is bizarre and grotesque. It does not reflect either the criminal defense bar and makes for a poor basis for rewriting interview policies in my view. Notably, this was a sting operation so the prison was made aware of the violations and audio taped the encounter.
Notably, Kirk never filed formally as counsel for the women. She contacted him to represent her but did not have money to pay him. Kirk allegedly said that he would trade her performing sexual acts. The inmate stated that she had performed such acts four times while Kirk watched.
(As a completely irrelevant aside, Kirk bears striking resemblance to Charles Laughton as Roman Senator Gracchus and appears to display the same predilections).
When a public defender contacted her about her case, the inmate realized that Kirk was not acting as her counsel. That is when she went to the prison and agreed to the sting. They arranged for her to say “my pants are too tight” as the signal for the officers to raid the room.
The sheriff’s office stated that “[d]uring his visit, Kirk furnished her with lubricating jelly and a sex toy and as this began our investigators opened the door and arrested Frank Kirk immediately.”
Kirk has previously run into problems with the law. In 1985, he pled guilty to a misdemeanor conspiracy charge where he set up sham marriages. He was sentenced to six months in federal prison. It is not clear how he was able to retain or regain a license. I would make that my focus as opposed to the search policies for attorneys.

Hey are using WordPress for your site platform? I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to
get started and create my own. Do you require any coding knowledge to make your own
blog? Any help would be really appreciated!
I’m a little confused…
He is alleged to have done these things…..and is in trouble for having a mobile in the interview room? How else was he suppose to video the auditions?
Sleaze is not a jailable offence, or an offence at all. Past track might make you wary but nothing worth more than a slap on the wrist in present time.
okay, I’m not going to ask where the vibrator was hidden.
Oh come on, let’s overreact and do full body cavity searches on all attorneys.
I don’t see the need to change the attorney / client visitation regulations based upon this one case alone. Problems are not widespread enough to necessitate a change based upon the actions of one horndog attorney. If these allegations are proven then he deserves to be made a resident of the prison the rest of the lawyers shouldn’t be collectively punished.
Well that’s new one… ಠ_ಠ
Let’s see. 1. Sex in exchange for attorney’s fees. When the SCOTUS abrogates the Constitution, nothing can be done, but when an Attorneys gets a little pleasure in exchange for his hard work, and was obviously allowed to enter the jail with his cellphone, he gets disbarred?
And we wonder why everything in the country is so screwed up. Because crazy people are piloting the ship. I still feel like we are in the 14th century.

Wow, the guy is still pretty virile at age 70, but in his case that’s not a good thing.
Karen Treadwell w/ some spectacular inside info! Kudos, woman!
Does he have a pit bull?
I use to work for Frank Kirk! He was a sleazy no good, and suspected of killing his young wife with helping her to OD on heroin/cocaine. He’s so bad. KEEP HIM BEHIND BARS!! He pointed at gun at me when my child was in the room. He defended kingpins and tried very hard to get Timothy McVeigh’s case.
This is Oklahoma…..
