The Ohio Supreme Court suspended a northern Kentucky attorney for repeated shoplifting Thursday.

In an unanimous ruling, the Ohio Supreme Court suspended Rodger Moore, of Fort Mitchell, Ky., for two years with one year stayed because he had shoplifted on seven occasions and lied about it to the Cincinnati Bar after being advised to do so by his lawyer, according to court documents. 

Moore was arrested in 2001 in Atlanta for allegedly stealing 12 bottles of wine from a grocery store, documents show. The wine averaged a little more than $12 per bottle.  He agreed to do 65 hours of community service. 

Documents show that in March 2012, Moore was again caught shoplifting three bottles of wine, along with olive oil at a Cincinnati grocery store. Instead of walking out with the items, he brought UPC codes for less pricey items with him and scanned those at the self-checkout which reduced the price by $359.10. He confessed he had taken expensive bottles of wine this way from the same store five other times. He pled guilty and was allowed to enter a diversion program.

Moore's lawyer advised him to report the March 2012 charge to the bar association but he made false statements about the incident and did not disclose the other thefts in correspondence and in an interview with the bar association during an investigation.
