Assistant U.S. Attorney’s Affair with FBI Agent Results in Bar Suspension

A federal prosecutor who had a secret romance with a married FBI agent has been barred from practicing law for six months after the Louisiana Supreme Court found she committed professional misconduct.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Mignonne Griffing of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Louisiana in Shreveport failed to tell her bosses or defense counsel in two high-profile public corruption cases about her love interests with the FBI agent, who testified in her cases. When the affair came to light, she was dishonest or misled then-U.S. Attorney Stephanie Finley about the relationship, according to court documents in the attorney disciplinary case.
