MIAMI BEACH, Fla. – The Florida Bar recently announced that the Florida Supreme Court suspended a Miami Beach attorney for one year effective July 4.

Herbert Ervin Walker III, 55, is a former Miami-Dade Assistant State Attorney who resigned in 2007 after he was accused of sexual harassment.

This time, he was accused of creating a conflict of interest when he accepted about $5,000 in suits and monogrammed shirts from a co-defendant who took him shopping at Aventura Mall.

The Florida Bar also accused Walker of accepting $2,000 on a defendant’s behalf while knowing another attorney was representing him on the case. He was still representing the defendant who was unaware that he was communicating with the co-defendant.
